NEW! LIVE, REMOTE SHADOWING HOURS

Candidates for BOC’s Certified Mastectomy Fitter CMF certification now have the opportunity to accumulate many of the 120 hours* of patient care, in a remote environment, under the supervision of an appropriately qualified professional.

In response to the inability to accrue hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and for those of you who do not have access to a location, these sessions offer candidates for CMF certification the opportunity to view virtual, remote fittings. 

WHAT will be offered?

  • Mastectomy fitting sessions
  • Upper extremity fitting sessions
  • Product and policy sessions


WHAT DO I NEED TO RECEIVE LIVE, VIRTUAL SHADOWING HOURS?

  • A quiet, secluded space free from disruption
  • A laptop or desktop computer with a working webcam and microphone
  • The time required to watch actual fittings
  • Verification that your device meets system requirements


HOW DO I JOIN THE VIRTUAL SHADOWING SESSIONS?

  • Register on-line here.
  • Pay the $200 non-refundable registration fee.
  • Email documentation of successful completion (within the last five years) of an entry-level education course through a fitter school or education provider, or proof of experience in the field of mastectomy fitting to margy@justlikeawoman.com.
  • Session dates and times will be determined by our patients’ schedules and permissions.  You will receive an email notification when sessions are scheduled.

*A candidate will have a minimum of 120 hours (three weeks of full-time work) of documented patient care under the supervision of an appropriately qualified professional (another mastectomy fitter or a professional with the mastectomy fitter scope within his/her own scope of practice). Documentation should be maintained and kept readily available for auditing purposes.
