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.”
