Fully booked clinic in 3 weeks!

Here is a message sent to Dr Pourgol by NAO graduate, Nik Jovanović:

“Hey dr p! So I'm 3 weeks into my employment as an osteo and I'm almost FULLY BOOKED!!! This has been great so far! Thank you for everything you taught me.”

We graduate successful manual osteopaths because we teach them everything we know about business management.

Dr Pourgol’s business lectures are one of the main reasons so many students of other osteopathic colleges transfer to NAO.

To become a successful manual osteopath study at National Academy of Osteopathy.

With the Prime Minister of Canada

Dr Pourgol was honored to receive this letter from the prime minister:

"Shahin -- one year ago today, we made history together.

On November 4, 2015, I had the honour of being sworn in as Prime Minister, and I named our country's Cabinet. A cabinet as diverse and as strong as Canada itself.

It was your hard work and your unwavering support that made this historic achievement possible. Thank you so very much, Shahin.

Regulation of Osteopathy in Ontario

The word "osteopathy" is not regulated in Ontario or any of the other provinces in Canada. The word "osteopath" is regulated in Ontario. That is why National Academy of Osteopathy (Canada) graduates are permitted to use the word "osteopathy" in their clinic names or call what they do "osteopathy". The term "osteopath" is regulated in Ontario, British Columbia and some other provinces but not all.

In the province of Quebec and some other provinces our graduates can call themselves "osteopath". In provinces where the term "osteopath" is regulated our graduates call themselves manual osteopaths or osteopathic manual practitioners.
