When registering for JAMB UTME, you may want to know the list of polytechnics or colleges that are offering/running Orthopedic Technology.


In fact, if you didn't consider Orthopedic Technology right at the time of your JAMB registration, you may decide to do that when you're about to change institutions and courses.

  1. Mathematics, 
  2. English Language,

Why You May Want Study Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology

Starting with the basics, the definition and the potential of this course could give you a reason to want to explore the field.


Orthopaedic Technology is the art of casting and splinting broken bones and muscular injuries. The study program gives students the opportunity to get acquainted with the current possibilities of the orthopedic technologies sector in Nigeria and abroad; the patterns and prospects of change.


At the polytechnic entrance level, you'll be admitted into the polytechnic/college for the National Diploma. That's a two-year study in your field, after which you can work or proceed for the Higher National Diploma programme, which is another tow-year. You can as well cross to a university through Direct Entry admission.


Now, speaking of the direct entry, Orthopaedic Technology was formerly the ONLY OND course acceptable generally by all universities offering Nursing/Nursing Science. Although still being accepted to date, we now also have OND in Nursing.
