Ontario (Canada) Needs 2,500 Osteopaths

Province of Ontario Needs 2500 Osteopaths

The 2013 Canadian manual osteopathy job analysis report by the Council on Manual Osteopathy Education indicates that the province of Ontario (Canada) has a shortage of 2,500 manual osteopaths.

Currently there is only 1 osteopath per 20,000 people in Ontario (0.05 per 1,000) while there is 1 medical doctor per 500 people, 1 physiotherapist per 1,500 people and 1 chiropractor per 3,000 people.

Health professionals such as physiotherapists, massage therapists, physicians, naturopaths, acupuncturists, homeopaths, kinesiologists, athletic therapists, and chiropractors should consider studying osteopathy. You find employment quickly, or if you have your own clinic, you get tons of referrals. Most manual osteopaths in Ontario are fully booked and do not accept new patients. In Richmond Hill, Ontario there is a waiting list of 2 months to see a manual osteopath. Pay starts at $30 per hour for new graduates and the average income for established manual osteopaths is $90,000 per year. Over 95% of insurers in Ontario reimburse for osteopathic care.

We would like to see patients in every corner of Ontario have access to osteopathic care and we need your help to bring osteopathy to them. Enroll in one of our nine degree programs to study osteopathy with the largest provider of osteopathic education in the world. We teach European style manual osteopathy (no surgery, no medications), in 65 cities of 35 countries.

National University of Medical Sciences (NUMSS) offers 30 degrees; including 9 in osteopathy (BSc, MA, MSc, PhD, DO). NUMSS tuition is kept low at 1500 EURO per semester to make osteopathic education affordable to students worldwide.

Health professionals such as physiotherapists, physicians, massage therapists, occupational therapists, acupuncturists, homeopaths, and naturopaths may enroll in our accelerated program and finish the 3 years full time bachelor of science in osteopathy in only 6 months, or complete the 4 years Doctor of Osteopathy degree program in just 1 year.

Our sister school, National Academy of Osteopathy (NAO) offers an accelerated 4 months program for health practitioners in osteopathic manual practice. Tuition for the NAO diploma in osteopathic manual practice (DOMP) program for health practitioners is $5026 (Canadian). NAO program could be taken online or in-campus at York University Heights in Toronto. Students can practice in our student clinic.

NAO & NUMSS are fully accredited by the Canadian Manual Osteopathy Examining Board (CMOEB), International Osteopathic Association (IOA), Council on Manual Osteopathy Education (CMOE), College of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners of Ontario (COMPO), and many other organizations.

Our osteopathy programs are World Health Organization (WHO) compliant and our graduates, upon successful passing of the board exams are permitted to receive license numbers to bill insurers in Ontario.

There is zero unemployment in manual osteopathy profession in Ontario. Graduates find employment easily and many open their own clinics. The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) has chosen manual osteopathy as one of the top 25 occupations in demand in Canada (report published in 2012 in the Toronto Star newspaper).
