Welcome to the Hanger Residency Program

About our Program

In 1996, Hanger Clinic established a national residency program that is responsible for the organization, recruitment, management, and oversight of all Hanger/NCOPE accredited residency sites across the United States. Since that time, we have trained over 800 Orthotic and Prosthetic residents at our 150+ NCOPE accredited residency sites.

We offer a comprehensive, state of the art, patient care oriented training environment that focuses on the development of new practitioners in the most efficient, effective manner possible.

In addition, we have established over 40 Primary Training Centers that are especially focused on resident training within a structured medical residency model.

Our resident graduates perform much better than the national average on the certificate and licensure board exams and the vast majority remains with Hanger to become industry leaders in education, clinical practice, business, and management.

With nine business units serving different segments of the O&P industry, Hanger Clinic continues to find new ways to empower human potential for those with physical challenges, while remaining true to our rich history of superior clinical outcomes and customer service. We count on our residents to continue this tradition.
