Hi Guys, thought I'd make a thread for anyone applying to do Osteopathy!

I've applied for BCOM (have an interview already) and Swansea!

I'm nervous for my interviews😬 Does anyone know what to expect??

They probably ask you to confirm you have no morals and don't mind fleecing patients for unproven treatments, as osteopaths often treat conditions for which there is no evidence their practices work..
THANKS 👍🏻 Just what I needed to hear....not

Well, its better that you get used to it before you even start, as you'll have to put up with it for the next forty or fifty years.

Look on the bright side, at least you haven't applied to study chiropractic, Chinese medicine, homeopathy or faith healing.

I agree. Osteopathy is not a career I'd like to see my son or daughter take up. Not only will they have to hide what they do from their friends and relatives all their lives but they would probably be affected by the shame of it.

Maybe I wouldn't agree with what you choose to do with your life but I haven't gone around saying that you'd have to 'hide from your friends'

My occupations have been unexceptionable and my conscience is perfectly clear. It wouldn't be if I had spent my life peddling quack remedies.

Why is it any of your business? Leave them alone, there's no need to be so patronizing. If you don't like what someone does as a career there's no need to be up in their face about it. Surely you wouldn't like it if someone used your career against you. Grow up.

I think you are getting Osteopathy confused with Chiropractic there ...

Osteopathy while it has some crazy fringe practitioners is really rather more respected that chiro as chiro has no basis in actual anatomy...

there are also crazy fringe practitioners in Allopathic Medicine , Nursing and other health professions.

also i don;t think Osteopaths are known for causing strokes and anuerysms to be burst in the way Chiros are ...

If someone came here and said they were going to study a BA in fraud, extortion or prostitution, wouldn't you want to point out the pitfalls of such a career. This is exactly the same. I don't see how this is patronising at all. I'm trying to help the OP.

I did some work experience with an osteopath and saw first hand how much their work helped patients. Good luck with your interview op! 😊

Well a BA in prostitution doesn't even exist. Invalid point.

You're not "helping" - OP has interviews, has applied and clearly knows which direction they're going in and don't need someone telling them otherwise. At the end of the day, they will be making money while you'll be too busy judging peoples careers.

You are being patronizing.

I fully agree with you, Osteopathy is absolute nonsense. Heck, a degree in Mickey Mouse Studies would be less useless than Bachelor of Quacks Osteoidiocy
