How to Choose the Right Osteopathy School in Canada


Here is a quick guide on what to look for when choosing a school for osteopathic education: 

1-      What kind of diploma will you receive? Make sure the school offers a DOMP title (most Canadian schools do. It is the most offered diploma in Canada). Most insurers in Canada accept the title of DOMP (Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice) as it is a Canadian title used exclusively in Canada. National Academy of Osteopathy is the copyright holder of the DOMP title in Canada, registered with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office on October 09, 2013 (registration # 1108241).

2-       Is the school affiliated with the CRMOO? The Coalition for the Regulation of Manual Osteopathy in Ontario (CRMOO) is in the process of getting the manual osteopathy profession regulated in Ontario. National Academy of Osteopathy has provided $200,000 in funding to CRMOO. If the school is not a member of CRMOO there may be a chance that its alumni may not become part of manual osteopathy regulation in Ontario once the profession is regulated. Dr Shawn Pourgol, president of National Academy of Osteopathy (Canada) is the founder of the Coalition for the Regulation of Manual Osteopathy in Ontario.  You should make sure the osteopathy school in Ontario you plan to attend is a member of CRMOO to assure your are included in the process of manual osteopathy regulation in Ontario.

3-      What associations can you join after graduation? You should make sure the osteopathy school you plan to enrol is accepted by associations that are approved by extended health plan insurers. While manual osteopaths in Canada can work on cash basis without joining any associations in Canada, to bill insurers for manual osteopathic care they must join associations to get a license number for insurance billing purposes. There are many associations in Canada that are accepted by insurers and there are also some that are not. Currently almost all insurers that cover manual osteopathy, also accept associations National Academy of Osteopathy alumni can join. More alumni of National Academy of Osteopathy are presidents of associations in Canada than any other schools of osteopathy. NAO alumni are presidents of associations in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Manitoba. The license numbers of many of these associations are accepted by almost all extended health plan providers. Currently are alumni who are members of selected associations are getting reimbursed by all insurers that cover manual osteopathy in Canada.

4-      Can you join OCPCC after graduation? The Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada, founded by Dr Pourgol, currently has 169 clinics and it is estimated to reach over 500 clinics by next year. It is the largest private clinic in Canada and the main provider of manual osteopathic care to Canadians. Its size allows it to market effectively to all medical doctors across Canada as well as the public. This brings many referrals to OCPCC members and they dominate the osteopathic care market. Currently OCPCC accepts only manual osteopaths from 3 schools, one of them being the National Academy of Osteopathy. NAO offers a free postgraduate fellowship program in chronic pain management to its alumni. All manual osteopaths joining OCPCC must become a chronic pain specialist by completing a postgraduate fellowship program in chronic pain management offered by NAO. OCPCC is a member of the Coalition for the Regulation of Manual Osteopathy in Ontario. It is involved in the process of manual osteopathy regulation and the negotiations with the government, policy makers and third party payers. The Canadian Union of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (CUOMP), whose president is Dr Shawn Pourgol, offers free membership to all manual osteopaths who join the Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada (OCPCC). This allows OCPCC members to become the main provider of osteopathic care to union workers across Canada.

5-      How many alumni the school has? You should choose a school that has a large number of alumni. More alumni means the school has a larger say when dealing with the government, regulation and policy makers. Currently over half of the manual osteopaths in English speaking Canadian provinces are alumni of the National Academy of Osteopathy. NAO is the largest provider of manual osteopathic education in the world with alumni in 69 countries, and all Canadian provinces.  Currently all manual osteopaths in Newfoundland and Labrador, Price Edward Island, Yukon and Northwest Territories of Canada are NAO alumni.

6-      Is business management part of the education? To become a successful manual osteopath you must become good in business management. Make sure you inquire about what type of business management courses are offered by the osteopathy school you plan to attend. National Academy of Osteopathy has about 200 lectures on business education. Students learn about personal improvement and becoming more, marketing, promotion, public relations, tax planning, investments, financial planning, and asset protection. This is one of the main reasons why so many practices of NAO graduates become fully booked within months. And it is the reason why so many manual osteopaths who graduated from other schools join NAO to benefit from the business education provided by Professor Pourgol. Just applying the lesson on how to open a health spending account for an osteopathy clinic for example will generate over $1800 in tax saving per year for NAO alumni.

7-      Is the school accredited by CMOE? You should make sure the school is accredited by the Council on Manual Osteopathy Education (CMOE) of the International Osteopathic Association (www.internationalosteopathicassociation.org) which ensures that the school meets a certain standard in manual osteopathic education. NAO is an accredited member of CMOE. 

8-      How long is the osteopathic education? You should make sure the osteopathic education has about 2000 hours of education with 1000 hours of it being in the form of clinical education. In Canada most Council on Manual Osteopathy Education accredited schools offer education that is similar in total hours of lecture time (about 2000 hours). However most offer it in 3 to 5 years part time (one weekend a month). There is no full time manual osteopathy program in English speaking Canadian provinces that is longer than 1 year. NAO (Canada) offers a 1 year full time, a 2 years part time, and a 5 years part time DOMP program through on-campus in Toronto or online video lecture format across the world.

9-      How many instructors teach in the school? You should aim to choose a school that has many instructors. This allows you to lean more diverse subjects. NAO has about 30 instructors, including more technique instructors than any other schools in Canada. To see the list of NAO instructors click on the link below: http://www.nationalacademyofosteopathy.com/faculty.html.

10-   How dedicated is the school to osteopathy? You should choose a school that is dedicated to the profession. For us at NAO, this is our life. We live, think, and breath osteopathy. It is because of NAO that manual osteopathy is now expanded to 69 countries around the world. It is because of NAO that we now have a World Osteopathy Day (founded by NAO president Dr Pourgol in 2012) in June 22nd that is set to be recognized by the Ontario parliament as the official World Osteopathy Day. It is because of NAO that Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada has become the main provider of osteopathic care in Canada. It is because of NAO that the Coalition for the Regulation of Manual Osteopathy is funded with $200,000 to help manual osteopathy become regulated in Ontario. And it is because of NAO that the we now have Osteopathy TV (www.osteopathytv.com) which is in the process of preparing "The Last Resort", the first documentary on manual osteopathy which is going to be offered free of charge to NetFlix, PBS, and the Documentary Channel to increase public awareness in the role of osteopathy in chronic pain management. This documentary explains how and why manual osteopathy is so effective in treating chronic pain. No other school has done as much for osteopathy as NAO in elevating the profession. 

11-   Is the diploma of the school accepted by universities? DOMP is a diploma level program. You may wish after graduation to further your education by enrolling in the degree level osteopathic education. If this is the case then make sure the diploma you receive is accepted by universities that offer degree level education in manual osteopathy. We are affiliated with two universities in USA and Spain where our alumni can continue their education. NAO graduates currently receive automatic scholarships from National University of Medical Sciences in Spain (www.numss.com) allowing them to complete the bachelor of science in osteopathy or the doctor of osteopathy through online education with advanced credits at lower tuition. The National University of Medical Sciences, in Naples, Florida, founded by NAO president, Dr Pourgol, is the only manual osteopathy in the States and that university also accepts the DOMP title of NAO alumni for its degree programs. 

12-   Does the school offer clinical internship? You should ensure the school you are interested in offers a teaching clinic for students to see clients. NAO offers a teaching clinic in Toronto for its campus based students. Online students have also the option of doing supervised clinical training under NAO alumni in different cities which includes seeing 200 patients, completing 12 clinical rounds, handing in 12 clinical case reports, doing treatments on approved NAO clinicians, getting treatments by approved NAO clinicians, a thesis suitable for publication, and on-site practical and written exams.

13-   Did you speak with a few alumni? You should contact alumni of the school you are interested in and ask them about the quality of education they received. Our alumni love NAO! Here are some testimonials from them:  https://www.facebook.com/studenttestimonial/

14-   Did you get an osteopathic treatment from an intern or alumni? Make sure you receive some free treatments by interns of the school you wish to attend to see if their style of practice is interesting to you. We recommend everyone to contact admissions@nationalacademyofosteopathy.com to book appointments for free hour long osteopathic care with NAO interns. If you do not live near Toronto, visit one of our alumni for osteopathic care. Come see why we are the best!

Most osteopathic schools in Canada offer amazing education. However we strongly believe that National Academy of Osteopathy offers the best osteopathic education possible because it focuses on unique, innovative, and practical education that alumni can use in their practices. We have more alumni in Canada than any other school of osteopathy. Our alumni made us the leader in osteopathic education.

Osteopathy is an amazing profession and you would love it! It does wonders in treating chronic pain. Financially and emotionally it offers many rewards. Manual osteopaths have 98% job satisfaction rate (the highest among all health professionals in Canada). They also have the highest patient loyalty of all health professions (over 95%). On average they charge $80 to $140 per hour. However we have alumni in Toronto (Ontario) charging about $275 per hour of osteopathic care. 

We do hope you choose us for your osteopathic education. We love osteopathy, we are passionate about osteopathy and we are sure you would love osteopathy as well.

We wish to congratulate Ms. Stephanie Lim for being promoted to the position of registrar of National Academy of Osteopathy. We also wish to congratulate Ms. Stephanie Kumi for being promoted to the position of registrar of our two universities, the National University of Medical Sciences (USA) and the National University of Medical Sciences (Spain).

We apologize if our services have been slow in the past few months due to extra ordinary volume of emails we received. We do hope this reorganization improves the quality of our service to you, our students and alumni.

Billing Auto Insurers for Osteopathy

The Ontario policy in regards to billing insurers for treatment of patients who are injured in motor vehicle accident has been updated. Please read the file if you provide manual osteopathic care for MVA injuries.

One main change is that before you must have submitted OCF 21 (treatment plan) directly to insurer. Now you can give a printed copy to patient, ask patient to pay you, and patient directly will submit this form to insurer and insurers will pay patient directly. Previously insurer would send payment to you.

Best Career Upgrade for Personal Support Workers & Home Care Aides in US & Canada

Did you know with an hourly fee of $80 to $140, manual osteopathy is the highest paid health profession personal support workers and home care aides can enrol through online or on-campus education as a postgraduate program?

A number of manual osteopaths in Canada and States are personal support workers and home care aides who supplement their income by working as a manual osteopath (osteopathic manual practitioner) on a part time or full time basis, charging clients on average $80 to $140 per hour for osteopathic care they provide for chronic pain management or wellness care.

We offer a diploma program in osteopathic manual practice (D.O.M.P.) that can be taken through online or on-campus. It is 1 year for students without prior health education and 6 months for those who are health professionals.

Along with our two sister schools, the National University of Medical Sciences in Naples, Florida(www.numss.us) and the National University of Medical Sciences in Madrid, Spain (www.numss.com), we are the largest provider of manual osteopathic education worldwide with alumni in 69 countries.

Our alumni are permitted to work in all Canadian provinces and all US States as osteopathic manual practitioners. In Canada our alumni are permitted to join a number of associations which permits them to bill some extended health plan insurers.

Osteopathy is one of the top 25 occupations in demand in Canada (as reported by CIBC). There is zero unemployment in this profession. All manual osteopaths either find employment or open their own private osteopathy clinics.

We are founder of Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics (https://www.facebook.com/osteopathypainclinics). With over 166 clinics across the world OCPCC is the largest privately owned chronic pain clinic in the world. All manual osteopaths working in these clinics are our alumni.
To receive our information package including the academic calendar please send an email to admissions@nationalacademyofosteopathy.com. For more information please visit www.nationalacademyofosteopathy.com.

Registered nurse & manual osteopath Candace Terry, RN, DOMP writes about why she chose National Academy of Osteopathy:

After twenty-two years of nursing, I was at a point in my career that I needed a change. I met a Manual Osteopath during a training session for concussion analysis and treatment. I was very interested and started to look up what Manual Osteopathy was and quickly discovered that manual osteopathy coincided with my beliefs of treating a person as a whole.

So I started to look into the different schools that offered manual osteopathy. Finally deciding on NAO (National Academy of Osteopathy) and I am so happy I did. I first selected NAO because it allowed me to do full time courses online. It also had very good reviews from past students, even students that had attended other Manual Osteopathy schools then went to NAO.

When I started, the passion for manual osteopathy Dr. Pourgol conveyed when he was teaching made it feel like he was right in the room with you. His love for Manual Osteopathy made me want to learn more and more. Then when I went to Toronto for the 2 week hands-on, seeing the team in-person made me feel like I was part of a special family. The love I have for my new profession just increased tenfold.

The business classes were above and beyond what I was expecting. There were many times I said “I wish I knew that before” or “Wow. That makes so much sense.” I even caught my husband hanging around when I was watching my classes and saying quietly “Hmm”, “Okay”, and “Yes”.
I am looking forward to doing the dual degree BSc (O) and DO (Spain).

Thank you.

Best Career Upgrade for Nurses in Tennessee

Did you know with an hourly fee of up to $80 to $140, osteopathic manual practice is the highest paid health profession nurses in Tennessee can enrol through online education as a postgraduate program?

A large number of osteopathic manual practitioners (OPM) are nurses who supplement their income by working on a part time or full time basis as an OMP, charging $80 to $140 per hour for manual osteopathic care they provide for chronic pain.

All nurses in Tennessee receive advanced credits allowing them to earn a diploma in osteopathic manual practice - D.O.M.P. (online or in-campus) in a shorter time (6 months) at lower tuition ($7800 US approximately). Our program is open to all nurses no matter if they are registered or not.

5 Years Osteopathy Program Now Offered at NAO

We are happy to announce that we now offer a 5 years diploma in osteopathic manual practice program (DOMP) in addition to our 1 year full time (5 days per week) and 2 years part time (two days per week) programs.

6 Osteopathy Sessions Decreased Disability by 50%

Research finds JUST 6 Osteopathy SESSIONS (in a period of 2 months) reduced pain and disability by more than 50% in majority of 455 patients evaluated. Research was published in the Journal of American Osteopathic Association (JAOA).

We always keep saying that our popularity and the reason we are Canadian's number one choice for low back pain relief is our ability to treat chronic pain. And this research proves it!

Health Spending Account

Canadian alumni: have you set up your health spending account yet? If not please do so.

Setting this account would save you $150 per month ($1800 per year) for yourself and any employee you might have (your spouse or children if they work for you). Within 5 years or so the saving would be enough to cover the cost of tuition you paid to study osteopathy with us!

Most health professionals are not aware that they are legally permitted to become their own extended health plan insurer under the Canadian income tax laws. Even some accountants do not know about this tax benefit!

Our business education is what makes our osteopathic education unique and innovative.
