NUMSS New Alumni Card

The New Alumni Card

We have started a new program of issuing an alumni card for the DPT (doctor of Physical Therapy) graduates of National University of Medical Sciences.

The card will be mailed to all NUMSS alumni within the next three months.

As a gesture of thanks towards Dr Farjoud Shokouhi, the first DPT graduate of NUMSS (Spain) in Iran, the first card NUMSS alumni card issued was for this distinguished NUMSS alumnus (and current DO student).

Dr Shokouhi last week performed a miracle in Iran by getting a new scope of practice approved by the Iranian government for the physiotherapy profession. Now physiotherapists are legally permitted to prescribe a limited number of medications, order x-rays, prescribe and dispense orthotics and prosthetics and do acupuncture.

Dr Shokouhi was also the one who recommended NUMSS to offer an alumni card to DPT graduates. He is relentless in helping physiotherapists in Iran since he was elected to represent the profession as a supreme member of the Iran Medical Council.

A Revolution in the Profession of Physiotherapy in Iran

Physiotherapist, Dr Farjoud Shokouhi, DPT, a supreme member of the Medical Council of Iran and the first DPT graduate of National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) in Iran was successful in lobbying the Iranian government into accepting a new scope of practice for physiotherapists in Iran, a first in 50 years!

Physiotherapists in Iran are now legally permitted to prescribe a limited number of oral and external medications. They are also permitted now to refer for x-rays and other simple diagnostic imaging.

Dr Shokouhi, who is known as the father of DPT in Iran, has revolutionized the profession of physiotherapy in this country, first by bringing the DPT program in Iran, and now by lobbying the government into redefining the profession of physiotherapy.
We are so proud of our alumni. And we thank Dr Shokouhi for all he does for the profession.

Our university in Iran has over 369 physiotherapists as alumni of our DPT (doctor of Physical Therapy) program. We are now the number one provider of DPT education in Europe.

Dr Shokouhi with about 50 other Iranian physiotherapists have also enrolled in the DO (doctor of osteopathy) program of NUMSS (Spain) after graduating from our DPT program.

Dr Shokouhi, all Iranian physiotherapists are grateful for what you have done for them in Iran. Thank you!

369 DPT Students in Iran!

As of today, April 05th, 2017, 369 physiotherapists in Iran have taken the DPT (doctor of Physical Therapy) program offered by our university in Spain.

We have introduced the DPT to Iran and currently are the main provider of DPT education there.

Physiotherapists in Iran are urged to enrol in our DPT program. With increased enrollment comes increased recognition of DPT in Iran.

There are more than 5000 physiotherapists in Iran. We are confident that when the majority of these professionals receive the DPT degree, the Ministry of Health in Iran would accept this degree and finally the profession in Iran would be permitted to use the title of doctor of physical therapy.

Special thanks goes to physiotherapist, Dr Farjoud Shokouhi, PT, MBA, DPT, one of the supreme members of the Medical Council of Iran, who is also our first DPT graduate in Iran. Dr Shokouhi was instrumental in expanding DPT in Iran. Without his support DPT could not have spread to every province of Iran.

Dr Shokouhi forever will be known as the father of DPT in Iran and history will remember him as the physiotherapist who brought DPT to Iran.

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.

Birthplace of Osteopathy


Did you know osteopathy was founded in the state of Missouri in USA?
Acupuncturist, Bryan Wagner (seen in this photo with Dr Pourgol), is from Missouri!
Happy St Patrick's Day by the way. The green color today is because of St Patrick's day.


Manual Osteopaths Can Offer Physiotherapy Modalities in Canada


Manual osteopaths who wish to offer physiotherapy modalities such as ultrasound, laser, TENS, IFC, EMS, thermotherapy, cryotherapy, traction, & iontophoresis to patients are permitted to do in Canada once they take the appropriate courses.
The DO (doctor of osteopathy) program of National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) and the PhD program in osteopathic clinical sciences of the National University of Medical Sciences (USA) both offer physiotherapy modalities courses which enable manual osteopaths to offer physiotherapy modalities to patients.
Please note that while you are permitted to perform physiotherapy modalities after taking the appropriate courses, you CANNOT call yourself a physiotherapist and you CANNOT call what you do physiotherapy.
National Academy of Osteopathy graduates of the DOMP program receive scholarships to enrol at NUMSS (Spain) DO program for a total tuition of just 2,000 EUROS, a saving of over 5,000 EURO. A large number of NAO graduates continue their osteopathic education by enrolling at the DO program of NUMSS (Spain).
