Osteopathic Program Curriculum 

Our diploma program in osteopathy combines a comprehensive blend of osteopathic philosophy, theory, methodology, technique and clinical application. The curriculum is presented under the guidance of the college’s faculty in a classroom setting.

Following an osteopathic directed overview of the relevant anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the area under study, a significant portion of each class is then devoted to the hands-on application, practice and reinforcement of osteopathic palpation coupled with the application of theory and relevant corresponding osteopathic therapeutic techniques.

The program consists of three years of classroom study (3200 hours) followed by one year of supervised clinical practice internship (1100 hours).
