Access course

OCC Access Course

Osteopaths studying on our postgraduate courses need to have acquired hands-on skills beyond their undergraduate training. Our Access Course provides tailored training to introduce & nurture palpation of the involuntary mechanism and paediatric/developmental anatomy of the cranium, membranous/fascial & fluid systems to prepare less experienced osteopaths for further paediatric training.

Our experienced faculty will deliver this 3-day course, which enables osteopaths to reach the required standard for entry onto the OCC courses and does not limit our osteopaths to any one technical style. These days can also be useful to osteopaths who want to refresh or enhance  previously acquired skills & can be attended as individual days if space permits.


Course Content:

  • Day 1

– Vault & base osteology, applied anatomy & motion

– RTM & venous sinuses

– Sacral /pelvic anatomy & motion



  • Day 2

– SBS patterns, theory & palpation

– Fascia

– Fluid


  • Day 3

– Viscerocranium anatomy, osteology & motion

– Principles of treatment

– Intra oral techniques

– Condylar parts osteology, applied anatomy & treatment

All 3 days will be delivered in small groups to facilitate individual learning and needs. Most of the teaching will take place at the tables with very little lecture material & will include demonstrations interwoven with appropriate practical sessions. This is designed to deliver theory etc. but in a very practical hands-on way. In order to provide this level of supervision  numbers will be limited, and places are allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
