Interested in osteopathy?
If you are a member of the Armed Forces, the College of Osteopaths understands where you are coming from …
We know that you already possess many of the skills and attributes that make a good osteopath: high standards of professional conduct, competent at problem solving, organising and communicating, calm under pressure, hands on, self-reliant but also a strong team player, interested in keeping healthy, good with people, used to a high level of responsibility …
It’s a very promising start.
We also have an idea about where you might want to be heading next …
Osteopathy is an ideal profession to enter as a second career. It allows you the independence to work for yourself and to do the hours that suit your personal circumstances. Osteopaths are autonomous practitioners who can work for professional sports clubs, in GP practices, in multidisciplinary health centres, in higher education and within industry. You could even work from home. It is a career that offers enormous flexibility and job satisfaction. There is virtually zero unemployment among osteopaths.
The College of Osteopaths’ five-year M.Ost/B.Ost degree programmes in London and Staffordshire are part-time, and particularly appealing to those with existing work and family commitments. Teaching takes place over 18 weekends each year plus home study and attendance at the College’s teaching clinic, which brings the added interest of contact with genuine patients right from the start. We use a wide variety of lively and challenging learning methods geared to mature students.
The College of Osteopaths has considerable experience of training former members of the Armed Forces. We would welcome your application. A short foundation course (two weekends) is available for those without science-based qualifications.
