Celebrating 75 Years

75 years ago on September 9, 1948, formal articles of incorporation were filed on behalf of a small group of orthotic and prosthetic practitioners and orthopedic surgeons to establish the nation’s first O&P standard setting organization – what is now the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics. While the size, scope and name of ABC have changed in its 75 years, our early mission still rings true today. From modest beginnings to exciting growth, we’ve had a rich history and all of us at ABC are feeling more energized than ever. Please join us in commemorating this important milestone and enjoy exploring our 75th Anniversary page!
