Cioffredi & Associates Physical Therapists, Becca Swope and Zac Gardner, have recently attained the advanced certification of Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS)!
About 5% of US Physical Therapists are board certified in orthopedics with only 3 PTs in New Hampshire passing the exam last year – American Board of Physical Therapist Specialties
The OCS certification provides formal recognition of advanced clinical knowledge, experience, and skills in Orthopedics and is awarded by the American Board of Physical Therapist Specialists (ABPTS) annually. It requires a minimum of 2000 hours of professional experience and the passing of a rigorous written examination to demonstrate knowledge and advanced clinical proficiency.
“Getting my OCS was a professional goal, with it validating my orthopedic knowledge and ability to provide my patients with the best possible, most up to date care.”
“Although I already have a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, I wanted to refine my skills and treatment methods to help people recover from injury or surgery faster…my hope is that by passing that knowledge on to patients, they will feel more confident, empowered, and in control of their health.”
Please join us in congratulating Becca and Zac on this impressive achievement!
