Adam Edmunds Fellow Spotlight

Adam Edmonds, CPO, FAAOP
Cox Health Center for P&O

What does being a Fellow mean to you?

Being a Fellow means I can be more efficient with my learning and learn from other clinicians. It allows me to become a clinician instead of a practitioner.

How did you decide to get into O&P?

I was working in and received a degree in mechanical engineering and found the work to be a little uninteresting — there wasn’t enough human interaction. During my last year of college, I took some biomedical courses and thought they were extremely fun. I got a career assessment and did some soul searching and personal research, and it all pointed to a career in prosthetics and orthotics. I toured, shadowed, and talked with most of the prosthetists in Indianapolis. To get additional experience and training, I got a technician job and took O&P education courses at NUPOC (Northwestern University Prosthetics-Orthotics Center). Here I am as a clinician and Fellow. I’m truly blessed.

What kinds of things do you like to do outside of the office?

I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young boys. Sleeping is a big bonus with a young family. I also enjoy exercise and learning new things.

What advice would you offer to those about to or hoping to enter the profession?

Do it and enjoy it.
