"We are lucky to have constant support from the faculty throughout the entire residency process. They are quick to celebrate our successes and are there to help take steps to fix any issues we may encounter. In my opinion, this collaboration makes the residency much more meaningful." - Jennifer Penner, O & P Student

Residency Experience

Content

Once didactic proficiency has been demonstrated, students will enter the clinical phase of the curriculum. Residents will be matched to preceptors and assigned to sites from our over 100 national clinical affiliate sites for four to six, three months clinical rotations. Unlike any other O & P educational program, residency is fully integrated and supervised by Baylor College of Medicine. These rotations culminate in the completion of both Orthotic and Prosthetic residency requirements as defined by the National Commission for Orthotic and Prosthetic Education. Once the clinical phase is complete and the research requirement is satisfied, residents will receive their Master of Science degree and be eligible to sit for their National ABC board exams.
