Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics Residency Program
Our Residency Program is a mentor-based program that gives clinicians the unique opportunity to learn from our experience, better understand our products and techniques, and improve the care offered to patients.
Boston O&P hires the best graduate students from accredited Orthotic/Prosthetic Masters programs. Our residency program is accredited by the National Committee on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education.
Our orthotic/prosthetic residents have received extensive education, both theoretical and applied, through graduate training. With an increased emphasis on evidence-based patient care, residents are helping to design orthoses/prostheses that are based on scientific, rather than anecdotal, evidence.
Following residency, our residents become Board Certified through the American Board for Certification (ABC) in Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics. Our certified clinicians are bound by the ABC Cannon of Ethics, which promotes patient-centered care.
Our residents have the ability to rotate through various clinical settings, learning from orthotists and prosthetists considered experts in their specific scope of practice. It is a long-term commitment, and has the potential to turn into a staff position for the right candidate as we continue to grow.
Our future is our most important asset. We view our Residency Program as a win-win situation. You, the resident, have the ability to observe, learn, and participate in the finest clinical settings at this country’s most prestigious teaching hospitals. Being in a leading institution, you will be exposed to a variety of musculoskeletal disorders, various presentations of neuromuscular disease, and scoliosis.
We have high volume, patient care facilities, so lack of exposure is never an issue. With multiple facilities, you will be exposed to a variety of clinic situations. We have facilities located within teaching hospitals, another within the Longwood medical neighborhood, and others in a more typical private practice setting in the suburbs.
We view your residency as an extension of your formal education, rather than an entry level position. We are training for the future; both your career as a professional and your partnership with Boston O&P. We believe in the value of the Boston O&P experience and we are willing to share it. The standards we set for acceptance to our program, and the competency testing throughout will help us identify our leaders of tomorrow.
