Independent Study Courses
The Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy offers an excellent choice of high quality monographs through its Independent Study Course series. Since 1989, we have been providing clinicians, faculty, and students with a choice of contemporary topics that can strengthen clinical practice. Each course includes a comprehensive selection of monographs that address varied aspects of the primary content area. Our authors are carefully selected and are experts in their respective fields.
From a satisfied registrant...
"In 2013 I was granted certification as a board certified clinical specialist in orthopaedic physical therapy and have completed my OCS maintenance requirements each three years. Not only did I use independent study courses from the Orthopaedic Section to prepare for the exam, I continue to take these courses to stay current. I find the content of the ISC courses completely thorough and evidence-based and return to my course information frequently for review or to help guide a colleague during mentoring sessions with new physical therapists."
