The Myanmar School of Prosthetics and Orthotics (MSPO) was founded in 2012. It is the final P&O School established as part of The Nippon Foundation / Exceed Strategy to create a P&O sector in Southeast Asia.

The project is based on a partnership between The Nippon Foundation, Exceed and the Ministry of Health and Sport in Myanmar. It has three elements – MSPO, based at the University of Medical Technology in Yangon and two P&O rehabilitation centres, one at the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Yangon and the second in Mandalay.

MSPO enables students, selected after a first year of study on the University of Medical Technology’s common core curriculum, the opportunity to specialise in Prosthetics and Orthotics and gain a Bachelor’s degree in medical technology (P&O), accredited at International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics Category II level.

 The Myanmar project is still in the ten year development period funded by The Nippon Foundation.
