If you see a new face at Dankmeyer’s Linthicum or Eastern Shore office, say hello to new resident Michelle Forbus. Michelle is part of the unique prosthetics and orthotics program at Baylor in Houston, TX. The Baylor College of Medicine Orthotics and Prosthetics Program is described on their website as “the only academic program in the nation in which the dual clinical residency requirements are included. Program graduates are eligible to sit for both Orthotics and Prosthetics board certification exams upon completion of their M.S. degree.” As part of this program, Michelle will go to several different prosthetic and orthotic practices to do 3-6 month residency rotations. She will be with us at Dankmeyer for six months and then leave for the next part of her training.
Originally from Crofton, Maryland, Michelle did her undergraduate work at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD, majoring in Exercise Science. She was happy to return to Maryland to do a portion of her residency work close to friends and family. Outside the office, she enjoys hiking, swimming, and camping.
