The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy- with John Sharkey

The CAO has become Canada's premiere osteopathic school, leading the charge in osteopathic education in this country. Our program is 4 years long, with extensive classroom instruction including 1000 hours in practical training, the most comprehensive in Canada and aims to meet or exceed the WHO educational guidelines for osteopathy.

The CAO curriculum stays true to the origins of the profession in terms of principles, theory and application and offers an education vastly different from other Canadian programs for this reason. CAO teach Principles-Based osteopathy primarily, continually referring back to the original teachings of Still and his first graduates from the ASO.-Founders Day. I am delighted to be returning to Canada’s osteopathic community in 2019.

Surgical and Fascia Considerations-Dissection course 2020

This two day course is designed for surgeons, students or allied health professionals working in a particular specialty and/or at a particular stage in their careers. The course involves the use of fresh frozen cadaveric specimens. Clinical Anatomist John Sharkey (BACA and AS) will lead dissections identifying anatomy relevant to a wide array of surgical procedures on fresh frozen cadavers ensuring we preserve tissue planes while simulating the surgical experience. Surgeon's will appreciate that fascia is a vital structure and knowledge is required to reduce surgical insults and prevent nerve damage. Anatomical knowledge of fascia is necessary to protect, and, if damaged, reconstruct.

Stations include:

Regional anaesthesia: Paravertebral & brachial plexus block, epidural spinal block/lumbar puncture

Airway procedures: Intubation, video laryngoscopy, surgical cricothyrotomy, difficult airway access

Thoracic access: Thoracostomy & thoracotomy

Cranial access: Burr hole & Craniotomy

Orthopaedic procedures (upper limb): Fasciotomy & carpal tunnel release

Who its aimed at

This course is suitable for clinical anatomists from both academic and clinical backgrounds who are involved in teaching clinically applied anatomy relevant to clinical procedures at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels.Full details are available on application.

Biotensegrity Focused Dissection Seminar, Dundee University, Scotland

These dissections represent the Worlds first Thiel Soft Fix Dissection courses with a BioTensegrity focus, The dates for my next course in 2020 which will run over three days include: Thursday June 25th, Friday 26th, and Saturday 27th. Invited speakers at this special three day event will be orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Antonio Stecco, Dr Niall Galloway and our regular team members including Clinical Anatomist John Sharkey and surgeon Dr. Gil Mendez, with biotensegrity interest group experts Joanne Avison, Leonid Blum, Graham Scarr and Dr. Wilbour Kelsick, and Mark Flannigan.

This unique three day dissection course takes place at the College of Life Sciences, Department of Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee, Scotland. 

Come join us in the summer of 2020 when a group of world-renowned experts including specialists from embryology, biomechanical engineering, molecular biodynamics, anatomy, anatomopathology, Yoga, Pilates, Neuromuscular Therapy, Osteopathy, Biotensegrity gather in Dundee University to the construct of living matter underpinned by the model of Biotensegrity-Anatomy for the 21st Century.

Participants on the course will be invited to ask questions and share their vision with this panel of recognised internationally respected authorities.

This rare and unique three-day dissection course involve's the use of soft fixed cadavers using the Thiel soft fix embalming method. The cadavers exhibit a greater degree of flexibility and true color retention compared to that of traditional formalin-fixed cadavers. Each day will involve a short presentation before moving into the dissection room where under the guidance of clinical anatomist John Sharkey you will participate in a life-changing educational and transformational  experience. There will be time for questions and personal inquiry. This is a rare opportunity to explore the human form and John's team of experienced experts will do all they can to support you. 
Biotensegrity will be our main theme in the course providing the foundation for our understanding of the continuity of the human form. 
A special focus will be around the subject of Embryological Origins; on a scale of softness to stiffness (of soft tissue) throughout our lives. Considering that we live and develop between conception and elder hood, as a tensioned network that relies on BioTensegrity organisation to grow and change and emerge differently, at any point in time; over time…. in a continuum. 

Explore how movement and form, in Biotensegrity architecture, are exquisitely interrelated from conception and throughout life. 

Expand your perception of our self-assembly and how humans as the architects become or respond to our loading history?

Question how does appropriate stiffness relate to tensional integrity and elasticity in motion; from the cradle to the grave?

Witness the tensional nature of the body while we discuss how we grow what we are looking at in the dissection; such as the heart, the limb's and viscera.

Global Integration of Movement, Assessment and Clinical Applications

Join us for the 1st Canadian Biotensegrity Informed Seminar! 

Sign up to listen to, meet and chat with three world-leading authorities: Joanne AvisonJohn Sharkey, and Wilbour Kelsick as they host a three-day workshop on Biotensegrity Informed Movement Science and Bodywork Therapy. 

This three-day conference marks a historical development in bodywork and movement science in Canada. Therapists and practitioners alike have long been searching for explanations and answers that make sense of the bodies they work with every day. Conventional anatomy books and explanations provided by classical biomechanics texts fall short of the reality that is biotensegrity. This unique event will provide answers to the burning questions you want to ask.
