Letter from Dr Lugo, MD, DO from Quebec, Canada

A letter from National University of Medical Sciences DO (Doctor of Osteopathy) student in Dorval, Quebec, Canada:

Hello Dr Pourgol, I just wanted to share with you the web page of the medical center where I’m working full time now, starting this January 2015, I’m very happy!

I wanted to say THANKS Dr Pourgol. Osteopathy has opened big doors for me! Now I know that I took the right decision when I choose to study in your school (NUMSS).

Dr Mariana Lugo, MD, DO
Dorval, Quebec, Canada
PS. In three Canadian provinces such as Ontario our graduates must use manual osteopath or osteopathic manual practitioner when referring to themselves. In the province of Quebec and most other Canadian provinces they can call themselves osteopaths. 
Please note that the DO designation issued by NUMSS is a Doctorate degree (Doctor of Osteopathy). While the DO issued by all osteopathic schools in Quebec is a diploma and stands for "Diploma in Osteopathy".
