Training in Paediatric Osteopathy

Postgraduate training in Paediatric Osteopathy

Looking for your next step? Qualified osteopaths looking for continuing professional development short courses or a rigorous, clinic-based postgraduate training programme in Paediatric Osteopathy are in good hands at Osteopathic Centre for Children. 

The OCC (also known as Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy) has become a world-recognised learning institution, having awarded more than 250 postgraduate diplomas to registered osteopaths since 1991. We are best known for our unique clinical Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy (DPO) course, but in 2022, the OCC has presented a new and innovative educational pathway, which is designed to enable osteopaths to nurture, develop and enhance their specialist skills in paediatrics.

This newly developed educational pathway is founded on our well-respected Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy, and includes two stand-alone 1-year courses (the Certificate in Paediatric Osteopathy – CPO and the Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy – DPO), 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.

As well as regularly refreshing our CPD short courses, we have organised international conferences, bringing together the world’s most experienced paediatric osteopaths to deliver lectures on the latest developments and issues relating to the specialism. 

Train with us, and join a world-wide network of practitioners who in addition to our Alumni include over 40 Associate Members who practise throughout the United Kingdom, continental Europe, Australia, Israel and the USA.
