For the past two decades, Snell has intermittently offered a prosthetic and orthotic residency program and is currently the only active one in the state.

The motivation for offering the program is two-fold. “There is a shortage of manpower in our field like there is in all professions these days and our residency program is a useful recruiting tool,” Frank Snell says, “but it’s also a form of giving back to the profession.”

Snell supports all three residency program tracks – the 12-month single discipline model, the 12/12 month double discipline model, and the 18-month dual discipline model.
