How it Works

Each independent study course consists of 3, 6, or 12 monographs in a binder along with instructions for completing the final examinations online. Monographs on average require 4 to 6 hours to complete. Ten multiple-choice review questions are included in each monograph for your self-assessment (answers are on the last page). Current Concepts of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy consists of case scenarios and multiple-choice questions. The final examination consists of multiple-choice test questions.

Educational Credit
To receive continuing education, registrants must complete the examination and receive a score of 70% or higher on the examination. Registrants who successfully complete the examination online will be able to print a certificate recognizing the contact hours earned. Only the registrant named will obtain contact hours. No exceptions will be made. The Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy’s Independent Study Course (ISC) program has continuing education approval from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), which, in turn, is designated an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). The Academy also independently pursues approval of its ISC courses with Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, California, and Texas. Registrants from other states must apply to their individual State Licensure Boards for approval of continuing education credit based on the number of contact hours accompanying each ISC.

Testimonial From a Registrant...

“I wanted to thank ISC Editor Dr. Christopher Hughes, authors, and the entire team at the Orthopaedic Section for creating an amazing study course to prepare for the APTA OCS exam. I am convinced the Current Concepts of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy (4th ed) was one of the keys for me to successfully pass the OCS this June.”
