Beattie directs EMU O&P grad program

Eastern Michigan University (EMU) in Ypsilanti in October named Wendy Fischl Beattie, CPO, FAAOP, new program director and clinical coordinator of its graduate program in orthotics and prosthetics.

The two-year program is one of only a few accredited O&P master’s degree programs in the US and the only one in Michigan. It prepares students for a one-year residency in each discipline or a dual 18-month residency.

Prior to joining EMU, Beattie served as residency director and clinical education coordinator for Troy, MI-based Becker Orthopedic, where she was responsible for overseeing O&P residents and continuing education for practitioners.

She holds two patents for prosthetic componentry and is a past president of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists and founder of Special Opportunities for Advanced Rehabilitation, a nonprofit foundation designed to provide fitness opportunities and equipment to those in need.
