Our Students Made Us #1

The graduation day was about a week ago and already so many of our graduates found employment as manual osteopaths. This makes us so proud!
It is because of such great students that our schools have become #1 provider of osteopathic education in the world, teaching in 68 countries. The success of our students is what attracts many new students to enrol at one of our three schools.
National Academy of Osteopathy (Canada) is the largest provider of osteopathic education in Canada. Over half of manual osteopaths in Canada are our graduates.
We have introduced osteopathy to many countries for the first time. Countries such as Brunei, Mauritius, Tanzania, Iran & Colombia now have access to osteopathic care, thanks to our alumni.
Our university in Florida, National University of Medical Sciences (USA) is the only university in the states offering manual osteopathic education.
Our university in Madrid, National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) is the largest provider of doctor of physical therapy (DPT) & doctor of osteopathy (DO) programs in Europe.
Our growth and expansion is the result of our students being successful in practice. While the average income for manual osteopaths in Canada is $90,000 per year, We are happy to say that our annual alumni survey showed that many of our graduates are making over $150,000 per year way above the average.

Osteopaths: I thank you

They said it was impossible. They said it could not be done. But thanks to your support, my dear colleagues, we were able to register the first ever manual osteopathic university in the states!
National University of Medical Sciences (USA) in Naples, Florida has graduated its first class last week.
We made history by registering the first university offering manual osteopathic education in the states. This was due to the support of all manual osteopaths around the world who supported us in this project.
And last month we received notification from Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education & Skills Development that NUMSS (USA) is exempted from being registered with the ministry. Once again we made history. We are now the first ever university that is offering a diploma program in osteopathic manual practice on campus in Toronto (Canada).
Manual osteopaths; I thank you. It is because of your support that we were able to expand manual osteopathy in 68 countries. It is because of your support that provinces such as Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut in Canada (as well as Alaska in the states) now, for the first time ever have access to manual osteopaths.
I am grateful for your support. Since the past 7 years when I founded National Academy of Osteopathy and then National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) your love and support enabled us to help expand osteopathy in 68 countries. There are countries that never had access to a manual osteopath (like Tanzania, Iran, Bermuda, Trinidad & Tobago, Brunei, & Mauritius) and now because of your support we have graduates there helping people.
Without your support we could not have become the number one provider of manual osteopathic education in the world. I am humbled and grateful and I love you all for your passion, energy and support.

20% of Physicians in US are Osteopaths!

20% of physicians in the States are osteopaths. 25% of medical students in the US are osteopathic students.
Out of over 80,000 osteopaths in the US, only about 700 perform manual osteopathy techniques. The rest works exactly as a medical doctor in fields such as surgery, dermatology, gynecology, psychiatry, radiology, and general medicine.
