Orthopedic Residency: Curriculum Overview

Curriculum Overview

The curriculum was developed as a clinical residency based on the Description of Residency Practice for Orthopedics (DRP 2017) prepared by the members of the Academy of Orthopedic Physical Therapy of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and APTA staff. The American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE), a board-appointed group of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), published the DRP. The Residency is in development and is not yet an accredited program. AFBPTRFE decisions regarding candidacy for accreditation will be determined in the Fall 2020.
