What does the Casting Apprenticeship Program offer?
The Casting Apprenticeship Program offers passionate physical therapists a chance to pursue and develop in-depth skills in serial casting, and be a pioneer in launching the Serial Casting Institute (SCI) early on and supporting it long-term.
The program puts physical therapists in a position to support the growing need for serial casting services in the Chicagoland area.
The program will also have tiers of apprenticeship that help those in the program access casting experiences that are appropriate for their skill level.
