Per NCOPE Standards of Accreditation for the Orthotics/Prosthetics Residency Program, completion of the NCOPE Residency Program Development Continuing Education Courses are required to be completed by both current and prospective NCOPE residency program directors and mentors.
The current and prospective residency director must complete the "Course One: Preparation to be a Residency Program", "Course Two: Development of a Residency Program" and "Course Three: Assessment in the Residency Program" courses.
Both current and prospective residency mentors at your residency program who evaluate and assess residents for competency utilizing the Typhon Group must complete the "Course Two: Development of a Residency Program" and "Course Three: Assessment in the Residency Program" courses.
These online learning resources are designed to systematically guide you through the steps required for hosting a NCOPE accredited residency program and to help you develop the most effective residency experience for new graduates.
- The American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (ABC) has awarded Category I Mandatory Continuing Education (MCE) business credits for each course.
- These courses are offered for free to all individuals that meet the standards to serve as a residency mentor and/or director via the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS).
You may complete each course at your own pace. Also note there is no sound accompanying the "Course One: Preparation to Be a Residency Program". Quizzes are embedded throughout each course to verify your understanding. After completing all of the quizzes in each course, your cumulative grade must be a minimum of 80% to pass and print the certificates of completion and earn ABC MCE credits.
We hope you find this online resource helpful in implementing and managing your residency program.
