The Right Fit: Century College serves the Orthotics and Prosthetics industry

“Rebuilding the lives of patients who suffer limb loss or a lack of mobility takes someone who cares. Someone who is deeply involved with matching the needs of patients with the technology that can enable them to reach a new normal.

Century College in White Bear Lake, Minnesota has dutifully served the Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P) industry for 44 years by teaching beyond the technical skills. The school’s Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics program ensures that its graduates are prepared to enter the workforce with an advanced skill set and an open heart.

“I think that’s the number one reason that I went into the field. You’re not just with an amputee who walks in the door just for that one day. You build a long-term relationship,” said Drew Gienau of Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Gienau has wrapped up the last year of the collaborative Century College and Concordia University master’s program and his clinical rotation with Limb Lab in Rochester, Minn, where he works as an O&P assistant and fitter. He has spent his time working with veterans to help them rediscover their mobility.”
