Brian draws from his experience
My initial interest in the medical field came through an auto accident at age 17. I was in serious condition and had multiple surgeries on my left leg. I was able to return to a completely functional level and still feel indebted to the medical staff involved in my care. I decided I wanted to be part of helping people with physical challenges return to a functional level.
I was in my senior year of my undergraduate at BYU when I first became aware of Orthotics and Prosthetics. A local physician visited as a guest speaker and I spoke with him after class. He suggested several professions and I decided to look into Prosthetics and Orthotics. I contacted a nearby O&P facility and before long was able to set up my internship. By the end of my internship I was accepted to the O&P certificate program at CSUDH.
I graduated CSUDH in 2009 and have worked in Orthotics and Prosthetics since. I have focused more on Orthotics and received several special training courses in the field’s progressing treatments. I have had the opportunity to sit with Doctors and Physical Therapists in several different settings to discuss proper pathways for each patient’s recovery or adjustment process. I feel a great reward at work.
