Education Alliance: UHart & AOPA
To be distinct, you have to be bold. At the University of Hartford, we honor that kind of courage. Our educational alliance with the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) allows you to earn a Certificate in O&P Business Management.
The University of Hartford and AOPA believe that by sharing resources and support, Orthotics and Prosthetics professionals can accomplish their goals and explore crucial business challenges—from finance, sales and marketing to business operations, reimbursement policies and management.
This Business Management Certificate Program is similar to non-degree continuing education programs that universities offer in conjunction with their MBA programs. The Certificate Program courses will be offered at the AOPA Assembly, online and targeted seminars throughout the country (such as the Mastering Medicare: Essential Coding and Billing Techniques Seminar).

Our unique approach to comprehensive education gives us the critical perspectives that lead to impactful change, regionally and beyond.
