Adult learners and career change students are increasingly common in prosthetic and orthotic education. This may be attributed to the relative obscurity of the profession within the allied health arena. Potential students are often introduced to the field through personal experience. The student may know someone in need of services, have obtained services themselves, have had professional or personal contact with a prosthetist-orthotist, or have had other casual circumstances with someone involved in prosthetics or orthotics.
