So, a few unexpected turns and a year and a half later, Tim finished the Orthotics program at Northwestern! The first 6 months were online while we were living in Knoxville and these past 3 months have been an intensive clinical study at Northwestern’s downtown Chicago campus.
From here, Tim will start a 1 year residency at a clinic in the North Riverside neighborhood just west of Chicago where he will get some good hands-on time with patients and continue to learn with a bit more responsibility. At the end of the year Tim will take his boards and hopefully become a certified orthotist… and start back to school for prosthetics! Here are a few pictures:
