This four-year integrated Masters degree is designed for undergraduate entry, to enable you to become an accredited practising Osteopath upon completion. Osteopathy is a manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, including joints, muscles and the spine. It is complementary to other medical practices. An osteopath practices manual techniques on the neuro-musculoskeletal system using patient-centred approaches. Relevant psychological and social factors also form part of the process of patient diagnosis. During this course you will receive a minimum of 1,000 hours of clinical training to prepare you for a confident and successful career in our state-of-the-art laboratories for musculoskeletal biomechanics, health and exercise clinical assessment and research. Core disciplines of this course include anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition, biomechanics.
This undergraduate integrated pre-registration master course has been fully approved by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and Privy Council. In the United Kingdom, osteopathy is a statutorily regulated profession. Only graduates from a degree course that is approved by the General Osteopathic Council are permitted by law to practise as osteopath. This undergraduate course is focused on enabling you to become a practising registered Osteopath. Osteopathy is a rewarding career. The career path is primarily private practice upon GOsC registration and there is an increasing provision of osteopathy via the NHS within GP practices and community health centres
