Pre-Doctoral Training Program
Prosthetics and Orthotics

The School of Applied Physiology in the College of Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology announces the availability of positions for the fall of 2011 in our predoctoral training program with an emphasis on prosthetics and orthotics. Graduate training in the School focuses on interdisciplinary research in biomechanics, the neural control of movement, and the physiological basis of movement control. Capitalizing on current collaborations with units on campus in the Colleges of Engineering and Computing, and off campus in Georgia State University and the School of Medicine at Emory University, the program invites applicants to participate in the evolution of a research culture in the field of prosthetics and orthotics, and advance the profession and in the larger context the broader field of Rehabilitation Medicine.

With the support of the NIH and the Georgia Institute of Technology three students are accepted into the program each year and funded for three years including a stipend, tuition remission, a travel budget and funding for related expenses to include health insurance. Twenty-six graduate faculty members and over 50 clinical faculty members are available for mentoring and related committee work included in 5 separate Schools at Georgia Tech, two schools at Georgia State and two departments in the School of Medicine at Emory University. The flexible curriculum with a series of required and elective classes can accommodate basic undergraduate preparation in engineering and the life sciences as well as pre- and post-professional applicants in the field.
For information regarding application to the program please contact Joy Daniell at: joy.daniell@ap.gatech.edu.
