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.
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.
