Some students may be curious to know, “What is a Master in Orthopedic Therapy?” Orthopedic therapy is treatment for muscular or skeletal pain caused by accident or injury. In a master’s course of study in orthopedic therapy, individuals who are interested in relieving the pain of their patients can learn about anatomy and physiology, lifespan development, cognitive intervention, rehabilitation evaluation, theory and scope of practice, kinesiology, and activity group processes.

Throughout the course in orthopedic therapy, students acquire essential skills for working in the field. These tend to cover varied medical knowledge, like how to implement patient-centered intervention plans and how to evaluate delivery methods with respect to dynamic patient needs. Additionally, students can gain professional skills such as leadership and the ability to capitalize on personal strengths.

Costs for master’s degrees vary widely depending on where you study and type of institution offering the degree. This is no different for orthopedic therapy. This degree generally requires two years of study.

After completing the master’s degree, students of orthopedic therapy may be prepared to pursue careers as occupational and physical therapists. Additionally, these degrees can also supplement other medical careers such as orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, therapy assistants, nurses, and orthopedic technologists. When you are choosing a degree program, remember to look for those that offer hands-on experience to prepare to these types of careers.

A Master in Orthopedic Therapy can be pursued in many countries around the globe. It may even be possible to enroll in a course online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
