Evaluation & Recognition

Upon request, ISPO evaluates prosthetics and orthotics schools and education programmes throughout the world against its standards to reach ISPO Category I and II recognition. At this point, ISPO is setting up the Cat III recognition process.

ISPO helps with the establishment and development of P&O training programmes by providing advice and expertise. An ISPO evaluation consists of a detailed revision of the entire programme, including student entry requirements, teaching content, clinical training, quality and administrative procedures.
