Orthopedic Residency Direct 

At the Nxt Gen Institute, we believe in providing evidence-affirmed education that is accessible at anytime, by anyone, from anywhere. With this mission in mind, we have re-imagined the possibilities for Orthopedic Residency.  By standardizing a completely virtual option (including virtual mentorship), we have solved for gaps that exist with traditional frameworks.   Our curriculum is modeled after the APTA DSP in Orthopedics.

Key Features:
  • Residency education for 1/2 the cost!
  • 100+ hours of Virtual mentoring with a board-certified OCS 
  • Streamlined, education that will prepare you for the OCS
