Program Delivery Format

The program is delivered in a blended format – Online learning and Hands-on clinical training. This flexible, efficient and affordable training program is accessible anywhere in the world. Our students are busy professionals, successfully combining their studies towards a diploma in manual osteopathy with work and personal commitments.

Module I

The PRECLINICAL online module delivers CORE OSTEOPATHIC KNOWLEDGE. Comprehensive courses in anatomy, physiology, pathology, and biomechanics build a solid academic foundation in health sciences essential for any further medical studies and clinical work. Students gain an appreciation of OSTEOPATHIC principles that underpin the osteopathic approach to treatment and differentiate osteopathy from other healthcare models of today.

The nine-course curriculum is accessible entirely online.  The course instructor is available for students’ questions and support. Learning material is delivered through recorded lectures (where applicable), downloadable presentations, related readings, and video tutorials. Students can test their progress with online quizzes embedded in each learning unit. There is no deadline to complete the online studies: students’ access to www.studyosteopathyonline.com does not expire.

Module II

Under the direction of experienced osteopaths, students begin the integration of their theoretical knowledge into actual practice in a supervised osteopathic clinical setting. For eight consecutive days, student-osteopaths work on real-life patients from different age groups and presenting a spectrum of health conditions encountered in a busy osteopathic practice. A student-to-teacher ratio allows for a personalized approach to each participant: students are encouraged to develop the treatment style relevant to their professional specialization. 

An integral part of osteopathic practical training  is Case-Based Learning (CBL) that reflects students’ clinical outreach work with clients within their current practice.  Throughout the CLINICAL MODULE, students gain competency in clinical reasoning and treatment skills necessary to identify a somatic dysfunction, formulate an appropriate treatment plan, and perform an integrated osteopathic treatment using the most effective osteopathic techniques.  For more information clinical module organization, please refer to DOMP Outline available for download on this page.
