BOC to drop O&P, pedorthic certifications

The Owings Mills, MD-based Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC)’s Board of Directors in May approved a plan to sunset the acceptance of new applications for its orthotist (BOCO), prosthetist (BOCP), and pedorthist (BOCPD) certifications.

The decision will lead to greater growth opportunities for the organization and streamline the professions’ credentialing options, according to a BOC release that also noted the organization will continue to provide assistance to all BOC-certified professionals in meeting continuing education requirements, renewing their certifications, and helping them deliver the highest level of quality patient care.
