High Standards of Education and Training

Most osteopathic training is undertaken at degree level. Osteopathic students now follow a four or five-year degree course, combining academic and clinical, ‘hands-on’ work. A qualification in osteopathy includes anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition, and biomechanics, as well as at least 1,000 hours of clinical training experience with patients.
