Continuing Education for Therapist

We are excited to announce the Prosthetics & Orthotics for Therapists continuing education course series is now being offered by the practitioners at Owens Carolina! The purpose of this series is to educate therapists on various aspects of orthotics and prosthetics, and to help strengthen relationships among Owens Carolina and therapy groups in the Charlotte and Lake Norman areas.

Attendees will have the opportunity to earn one continuing education hour per course, and all courses are approved by the NCPTA and NCOTA. We will teach the course at your facility, so there won’t be a need for your group to travel. The course will be free of charge!
