Curriculum Overview

The Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency Program is a one-year, 16-credit program, designed for the working physical therapist, leading to a Certificate in Orthopedic Physical Therapy. The curriculum combines clinical courses online, mentoring, and a supervised clinical experience, and prepares the resident for the Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) exam.

Our educational philosophy is based on a commitment to excellence in clinical practice and is directed by the "Description of Specialty Practice" published by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in 2001 for an Orthopedic Certified Specialist.
