Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics Residency Program
Boston O&P is seeking residents who have an entrepreneurial spirit and would like their careers in O&P to focus on improving the quality of care received by children and to play a significant role in opening new pediatric focused clinics in areas where they would like to live. This enhanced program requires a commitment of at least three years before assuming a leadership role in building a new clinic - two years for residency plus at least one year of practicing within our clinic system to further build upon your knowledge base of our major service programs and our culture.
To be considered, candidates should provide geographical areas where they would like to work and information about that location to help support the case for opening a clinic in that market post residency. Once a new clinic is established, this role will involve building a team, integrating our culture, and educating peers and referral sources in all of Boston O&P’s treatment programs as well as teaching/supervising new clinicians when hired. A desire and personality to actively build a practice and seek out and develop referral relationships utilizing our proven service programs is essential.
Boston O&P Mission
Our mission is to help kids one at a time.
Boston O&P Vision
In the process of achieving our mission, we will be recognized as the leading provider of pediatric orthotic and prosthetic services and products in the United States.
Boston O&P Culture
The foundation of our culture has four synergistic pillars:
- Our employees own 1/3 of the business and are empowered to act like owners every day. Our desire is to continue to increase the 1/3 employee ownership of the company to a higher percentage as the Company increases in value.
- We practice LEAN’s bottom-up leadership model in everything we do. Every team in the company is dedicated to providing the best service possible to their patients/customers, both internal and external. In that quest, each team is able to identify recurring problems, resolve internal and cross-functional conflicts on proposed solutions and eliminate the problems. We strive to never pass defects to each other or our patients/customers.
- We use the Four Disciplines of Execution (4DX) operating principles to ensure focus on and timely execution of the company’s most important initiatives.
- We are all lifetime learners. That spirit is woven into all of our day-to-day operations including all of our education offerings and our mentoring program. It is in our open-door policy to residents, interns, students, and collaboration and teamwork with referral sources. It is also inherent to internal promotion and role shifts because we believe that we all have the ability to learn and grow as people and professionals. Each employee is also provided a free subscription to LinkedIn Learning.
Having these pillars in place allow us to support our employees and their families and to help build the O&P profession. Most importantly, these pillars allow us to continuously improve the quality of O&P care provided to children and their families.
