The Student-Resident Committee of the American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists was formed with the goal of helping students and residents learn more about the Orthotic and Prosthetic profession and the work of the Academy, their professional organization. They will be encouraged to contribute their skills and energy to advance the profession and the organization. One of the goals of the Committee is to help new clinicians better understand what it means to be part of a profession and to work within a professional organization. Involvement in this committee affords the student/resident an opportunity to share information on issues pertaining to health care, advancing the field of O&P, and facilitating and fostering professional connections and relationships.

Mission, Goals, and Objectives

The Student-Resident Committee is dedicated to meeting the needs of the student/resident entering the field of Orthotics and Prosthetics. The Student-Resident Committee provides opportunities for leadership and growth during the education process with the goal of enhancing knowledge of clinical applications, professional advocacy, mentoring opportunities, and other areas which will further the development of confident, knowledgeable practitioners.

Participate in the Mentoring Program

The American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists, the only association representing professionals in the orthotics and prosthetics field, is recruiting individuals for its mentoring program. This program pairs new entrants in the field (students, residents, and practitioners with three or fewer years in the field) with a mentor (practitioners with greater than three years’ experience) who will help them define and achieve their career goals. This program is open to ALL Academy members.
