FAQs - postgraduate training

How do I get on any of the OCC postgraduate courses?

Our postgraduate courses are open to osteopaths who are qualified, registered with GOsC and insured to work in the UK.

For more info please see the relevant course’s webpage and requirements and email [email protected].

How academic are your courses?

Both our postgraduate programmes are designed for the needs of the practicing osteopath.

There will be a practical side to all our courses (OCC Clinic), as we offer experiential learning supported by tutors and experts, to enable osteopaths to demonstrate their competency in treating children.

The CPO and DPO will include seminars, tutorials and assessments, as well as well-researched and critical case reports and short reflective pieces based on your personal experience of the clinic, to develop osteopaths as true professionals in the management of children.

CPO - Do I need to do a cranial course first?

No. We provide an Access Courses for recently qualified osteopaths to develop specific and relevant technical skills that will enable them to begin our Certificate in Paediatric Osteopathy.

What techniques do I need to use?

Any osteopathic techniques which are safe and effective. There is no one style of osteopathy, and a broad and embracing technical approach is encouraged and taught.

Can I do the course in one year?

All our postgraduate courses are now one-year courses.

We may consider a Flexible Route for osteopaths for whom the standard programme is inaccessible, allowing them to attend biweekly for example – we strongly encourage you to discuss this option with us.
