Specialized Courses in Prosthetics and Orthotics (SCOPe)

Specialized Courses in Prosthetics and Orthotics (SCOPe) have been specially designed to be the most accessible and flexible way to build your career in orthotics and prosthetics. SCOPe is ultimately focused on meeting the growing global demand for highly skilled orthotist prosthetists in organizations, communities, in public, private and not for profit sectors.
SCOPe courses utilize an innovative curriculum design to support participants to both building new skills and to grow their existing skills and competencies to effectively meet the needs of their communities as orthotic prosthetic practitioners. With SCOPe these skills are built bit by bit through a series of short, highly specialized courses which can be taken one at a time whilst maintaining employment. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, SCOPe has courses to suit you.
Through a dynamic mix of video lectures, quizzes, hands-on clinical practice and comprehensive follow up, participants can integrate their new skills into daily practice.

Course structure


SCOPe training courses deliver knowledge and skills across a number of formats, encompassed within 3 phases:

  1. Online academic/ theoretical studies (multi-media content, pre-recorded and live lectures studied via e-learning platform over a period of up to 8 weeks)
  2. Onsite clinical application of theory (onsite hands-on workshop at either the participants’ own workshop, or at a workshop easily accessible to all participants; duration: up to 9 days.)
  3. Follow-up (online sessions that immediately follow the hands-on worksop, where SCOPe educators follow up with participants to assist with the application of knowledge into regular daily practice. Participants prepare case presentations and are encouraged to engage with the lecturers in reviewing cases and problem-solving. Duration: up to 3 months.)
