APTA OCS physical therapy exam prep course

The OCS Advantage was designed to be the most efficient resource for those looking to gain the Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist credential. Our goal with the OCS Advantage is to provide high quality, concise content that allows busy clinicians to optimize their time spent studying.

The key to efficient preparation is to avoid spending time on irrelevant topics or on items already familiar to you. Our study guides help hone in on areas that many physical therapists do not encounter on a day to day basis.

The OCS Advantage study guides will serve as a quick reference highlighting important clinical information and current evidence based practice. Each body region is broken down into 3 sections: Anatomy Highlights, Clinical Pearls/Research, and Differential Diagnosis.

In addition, the OCS Advantage comes equipped with a curated suggested reading list (supplementary articles included) and 275 practice test questions to simulate not only the format of the OCS exam, but also the mental fatigue that is inevitable with such a lengthy examination.
