The 400-hour clinical work experience requirement allows the student to work in the field while attending school, and allows them to graduate with experience that is usually not obtained until after graduation.

Offering our program over 11 months allows the student to retain more of the information than programs that offer comparable hours over longer time periods.

Class attendance is reserved for manual training and written examinations only. Class materials, assignments and study guides are utilized for independent study time at the student’s discretion.
Our curriculum exceeds the requirements set by the World Health Organization.
The intent of our program is to provide those working in a therapeutic environment with a set of additional evaluative and corrective techniques that will quickly and efficiently correct problems that current techniques are unable to address. We provide a sequential protocol that provides the most effective and timely treatment for the problem presented, using the 4 cornerstones of manual osteopathic practice: Osteoarticular, Fascial, Cranialsacral and Visceral techniques.
All four of these techniques are taught in detail and include the following categories for each: definition, history, philosophy, current scientific research, experts in the field, indications and contraindications, anatomy, physiology, common pathologies, injuries and complaints, assessment and correction protocols, manual practice and clinical work experience.

We include the often-overlooked reason for the majority of health professions/treatments:

  • Pain: definition, symptom cascade, clients with chronic pain and expected responses to treatment, emotional and physical considerations
  • Corrective exercises and behaviours
  • Indications and contraindications to treatments
  • Complimentary and contradictory health care philosophies

In addition, we help prepare students for the business and legislative requirements of the profession by providing instruction in the following:

  • Osteopathy: definition, history, founder, philosophy, and main techniques
  • Manual Osteopathy: definition, credentials, code of ethic and conduct, regulation and licensure, and association membership.
  • Business considerations: legislative requirements, financial reporting, insurance requirements, clinical records, privacy issues, prices, billing procedures, advertising, promotional techniques, networking strategies, and public speaking presentations.

We are confident that our graduates will be fully educated, qualified and experienced individuals with the practical, technical and business skills to succeed in the field of Manual Osteopathy.
