2019 Student & Resident Awards

Each year, ABC and The Orthotic and Prosthetic Education and Research Foundation  (OPERF) present O&P students and residents with awards highlighting their achievements in academics and research. In December, 10 O&P Master’s students were awarded the Student Award for Academic Achievement—a $1000 cash award for their dedication and academic excellence. Congratulations to all of the winners! 

ABC/OPERF also awarded three O&P residents with the Resident Travel Award and a prize of $2500 to travel and present their NCOPE Directed Study Project at the 2020 Academy Meeting and Scientific Symposium (Chicago, March 4-7). Congratulations to this year’s winners: Landon Davis, Brian Kerns and Joey Zisk
