Orthotics and Prosthetics Residency

The UMMC Division of Orthotics and Prosthetics, in cooperation with the School of Health Related Professions and the School of Medicine, offers two residency programs, one in orthotics and one in prosthetics. Each is 12 months in duration and typically begins in July and ends the following year.

There are four phases of the residency:

  • Clinical observation and technical assistance

  • Direct supervision

The program is accredited by the National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education (NCOPE). The program prepares the resident to take the American Board of Certification Examinations.
