SAOPA Student Program

SAOPA offers a unique opportunity for fourth-year O&P students to participate in our new student program. This program allows students to become sponsored Student Members of the association, giving them access to resources and networking opportunities within the industry. Additionally, the program provides students with the chance to showcase their work by submitting it for publication on the SAOPA learning platform where peers can access it.
