Our 1884-hour Manual Osteopathic Diploma takes place over 11 months. It consists of 14 two-day modules of classroom training, approximately 20-30 hours per week of self-directed learning, and 400 hours of clinical experience. The Manual Osteopathy Program is recognized as Full-Time in terms of Diploma Hours and Student Funding.

Classroom Instruction

Students will participate in 14 two-day modules that will take place from 9:00am - 5:30pm daily in Red Deer, Alberta.

The manual and clinical skills of a manual osteopath are what sets them apart from all other health care professions. The classroom component of the program deals exclusively with manual palpatory training in the modalities presented.

Clinical work experience

All students must complete 400 hours of clinical practice prior to graduation.

Our curriculum is a combination of traditional osteopathic techniques plus the most currently available scientific information. We view the body as an interrelated whole with a story to tell. We teach from a systemic, evaluative approach that seeks to resolve the client's discomfort or pain.

This program is designed for those health care professionals that already work in therapeutic environments that want to know more and increase their skill set to help more people.

We have established the NMOS (National Manual Osteopathic Society) to enable graduates access to insurance and 3rd party billing privileges upon graduation.

All other components of the program are provided to the student for home study
