The Association of Orthopaedic Practitioners (AOP) is an association whose members work within casting rooms and associated services throughout the UK. The AOP works closely with the BOA Casting sub-committee to promote and develop casting and splinting education and professional standards. Membership of the association is open to all personnel who are involved in casting. Students on one of the recognised BOA/GCU/AOP training courses can claim one year’s extra membership free when they join; visit for more details.

The AOP may allocate a discretionary grant to support members who undertake one of the national musculoskeletal casting and splinting courses; contact [email protected] to enquire.
