Our Manual Osteopathic Diploma takes place over 11 months. The Manual Osteopathy Program is recognized as Full-Time in terms of Diploma Hours and Student Aid funding.

Classroom Instruction

Students are required to attend all classroom sessions.

The manual and clinical skills of a Manual Osteopath are what sets them apart from all other complimentary healthcare 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 healthcare 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
