Current Resident FAQ
I am doing a combined O&P residency, how should I calculate the percentage of experiences in each discipline?
A combined O&P residency program should calculate the relative experiences by time spent to ensure no less than 40% of the time spent is in orthotics or prosthetics.
For example: A resident working 40 hours per week that spends 20 hours engaged in orthotic services and 20 hours engaged in prosthetic services would be considered working 50% in both disciplines.
I'd like to talk with someone about my residency experience that doesn't work at the company, who can I speak with?
The Regional Residency Liaisons would be happy to connect with you.
I just learned that I will not be able to continue my residency / my hours have been reduced. What do I need to do?
Short terms leaves are not an issue and there is no need to submit any documentation to NCOPE in these cases. If your hours are reduced to less than 37.5 hours per week on average or if you will be gone from the residency program for more than a 2 week period of time, please complete a residency status change form, which can be viewed by CLICKING HERE.
Where do I enter case logs and complete required forms?
NCOPE Tracker is the tool used to submit all required resident documentation.
