Ortho Baltic recently had intern Mariska Blankenstijn from the Fontys University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands, who spent here four weeks. `I came here in the third year of my studies of orthopaedic technology. Ortho Baltic, as it is an all-round company, made a good impression on me. Next to orthopaedic shoes this company makes orthoses; the combination of orthoses in orthopaedic shoes is also one of the possibilities`.
Mariska was very happy with welcome from the company and the experience she gained here. `They tried to show me everything that I asked to be taught at the beginning of my internship and they succeeded really well. The people in production, who showed me their work, taught me a lot. Even though communication was sometimes difficult because of language differences, I could always ask my questions and people explained how and why they did things in a certain way`.
`I think it is a great opportunity to come for an internship to Ortho Baltic and gain an experience. I would recommend students who are interested in orthopaedic shoes and the combination of orthopaedic shoes and orthoses to come to this company. Also for students who are interested in a Pre-Preg technology I would recommend to come to Ortho Baltic. However, I think it is very important for students to be able to speak English if they really want to gain experience and to get great internship. I have been able to learn a lot about the different aspects of the orthopaedic world and I am very grateful to the Ortho Baltic company for making this possible`, said intern Mariska Blankenstijn.
