    #4 Orthopedic Technologist… this is NOT a dental field. It has to do with FEET.

    According to the site you linked to:

    Orthopedic technologists (or ortho tech’s) assist the orthopedic surgeon in caring for people with injuries or problems with the skeletal system. They help with surgical procedures, explaining the surgery to the patient, and helping with the setting of fractures. Ortho tech’s apply and remove casts, fit and adjust canes, crutches, walkers and braces, and make splints for different problems. They also give patients instructions on how to use these items.

    In addition, the same site indicates that you need an associates degree and you have to pass a board test.

    I do like the way you have framed this specific problem and it really does provide me personally some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, coming from what precisely I have observed, I simply wish as the responses stack on that people keep on point and in no way start upon a soap box of some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this fantastic point and although I do not necessarily go along with the idea in totality, I regard the perspective. chakras
