When Steve Strasburg, CO, thinks back on
the requirements he was expected to complete 20 years ago as he worked towards
becoming a certified orthotist, he remembers there were a number of programs to
choose from. Some were good and some were bad. Among the choices were some
internships that were “pretty loosely run,” he recalled.
“As long as you could get someone to say you completed
your 1,900 hours of work requirement, you could qualify to take the
tests,” he said.
