ROMP believes in the power of education to transform the unequal distribution of prosthetic care in the world. Every year, ROMP's Guatemala program hosts clinical trips with leading orthotic and prosthetic schools to facilitate knowledge exchange between students and and ROMP's local staff.
Under faculty supervision, students and ROMP clinicians work side by side with real patients in our Guatemala clinic- exchanging ideas, sharing clinical techniques, and working to improve patient outcomes.
Educating future clinicians to the realities of disability care in resource poor settings makes them better medical professionals and advocates. Exposing ROMP staff to the latest clinical techniques makes them better clinicians resources for our patients.
Each dollar raised will help ROMP continue to deliver high-quality prosthetic care in the communities we serve. Represent an O&P school? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or your institution would like more information about this innovative program.
