Application Process

Please apply to the orthotic and prosthetic residency program using OPRESCAS, the NCOPE centralized application system for residents:

Each candidate must possess a Master's degree in Orthotics and Prosthetics from a CAAHEP accredited program.

Internationally educated orthotists/prosthetists must submit their transcripts via the World Education Services (WES) Education Evaluation.  The evaluation must clearly identify that a master's degree or higher in orthotics and prosthetics was awarded. 

Resources for internationally trained orthotic and prosthetic professionals can be found on the NCOPE website:

  1. Complete the OPRESCAS application, which is open from October 1 – December 15Note: Please only apply to one discipline in OPRESCAS, even if you wish to be considered for both orthotics and prosthetics. You can indicate that you are applying for orthotics, prosthetics, or both in the Questions section.
  2. Official transcripts: Please send official transcripts from your O&P school after the fall quarter/semester is complete.  Note: This is in addition to the unofficial transcript you will submit with the OPRESCAS application.
  3. Interviews: Select applicants will be interviewed remotely through a video call in January.
  4. Decision date: We will notify candidates of our decision in February.
