The OCC’s new and innovative educational pathway is designed to enable osteopaths to nurture, develop and enhance their specialist skills in paediatrics. Founded on our well-respected Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy, this newly developed pathway now includes two stand-alone 1-year courses which can be used to either start your journey in paediatrics or to build upon a journey that has already begun.
The pathway is designed with the flexibility to enable a postgraduate osteopath to structure their own learning journey; either following the courses sequentially and achieving a DPO in 2 years or completing them over a longer period of time.
For those keen to further deepen their paediatric knowledge, skills, and application, this one-year course will build on the foundations established in the first year and take osteopaths to DPO level. Osteopaths will be encouraged to debate, discuss & challenge their paediatric & osteopathic thinking in clinic and via seminar weekends, and will be expected to actively participate in the development and discussion with their first year “certificate level” cohort. Alongside another year working in the OCC clinic, osteopaths will have the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the embryology, anatomy & development of a child into puberty and cover topics including prematurity, behavioural issues, the seriously sick child, enuresis, immunity & vaccination, orthodontics, the development of gait & scoliosis, hormonal & skeletal changes and how these impact the growing child and teen.
Prerequisite Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy (DPO) Level – successful completion of certificate level or other relevant post graduate course with demonstration of appropriate osteopathic skills, knowledge, and supervised clinical experience.
