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.
