Welcome to NZOPA

The New Zealand Orthotics & Prosthetics Association (NZOPA) is the professional organization promoting one of New Zealand's smallest & essential healthcare industries. It has been active in New Zealand for many years and provides members with training, peer to peer learning and sharing of information, and is working to develop the profession in New Zealand. We run training days and an annual conference for members (which are often open to non-members), have established a programme for accreditation of members based on their continued learning and professional development and demonstration of their skills and knowledge.
