In order to facilitate the development of
new orthopaedic physical therapy residency and fellowship programs, the
Orthopaedic Section Board of Directors created the Residency and
Fellowship Education (RFE) Committee. The purpose of the RFE Committee
is to develop and disseminate educational materials as well as sponsor
educational programs to support orthopaedic clinical residency programs.
The Committee will develop a standardized curriculum model that can be
adopted in its entirety, or in parts, based on the needs of newly
developing as well as established clinical residency programs. The RFE
Coordinator, appointed by the Board of Directors, will direct and
promote this important Section activity.
