Main Provider of tDPT Education in Bangladesh

Academic Cooperation Between Bangladesh Physical Therapy Association & NUMSS (Spain)

The National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) and Bangladesh Physical Therapy Association (BPTA) have worked in the past two years to implement a campus based tDPT program in Bangladesh. The first postgraduate class of DPT (doctor of physical therapy) is starting this term in Bangladesh.

The tDPT education has become mandatory for BPTA members and in the next five years all physiotherapist members are required to obtain a tDPT degree, similar to the requirements of American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in the states.
As NUMSS (Spain) is the largest provider of tDPT education in Europe & Asia, we have been asked by BPTA to provide this education to its members.

We are excited to be accepted as an accredited provider of tDPT education by Bangladesh Physical Therapy Association. Our goal is to help elevate the profession of physiotherapy in BD and improve the health of society there.

Please note that in 2017 the name of Bangladesh Physiotherapy Association (BPA) has been officially changed to Bangladesh Physical Therapy Association (BPTA).

NUMSS DO Student Writes to Dr Pourgol

A letter from Michaela Von Pfetten, DOMP:

Dear Dr. Pourgol,

Thank you again, for everything. Your lectures and instructions have been motivating and inspirational. The great atmosphere on campus carried and encouraged me. Everyone is always friendly and humorous, helpful, understanding and kind.

I appreciate your dedication to us, your students, tremendously. Whenever I had questions or concerns, you were available. Your business lectures are invaluable and truly priceless and I have been following them from day one.

I am honoured and happy to continue my studies with the DO program. The students I know who are also taking the DO program have only the best things to say about it. I am excited!

I think it was on the first or second lecture that you encouraged us to make a vision board. I made mine right away and the biggest picture was a print out of you and a former student, holding his diploma. One day, I knew, I was going to replace that picture with one of you and me, and my diploma. Mission accomplished, Sir!

There is a proverb along the lines of "people forget what you said to them but they will never forget how you made them feel" (or similar). With you, dear Dr. Pourgol, I will never forget the things you said, and I will never forget how you made me feel: You made me feel that I can do it! And so I did!

With gratitude and a big smile,

The First Doctoral Degree in Animal Osteopathy

We are in the process of setting up a doctorate program in canine and equine osteopathy at National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) and National University of Medical Sciences (USA).
Even though there are 1000s of manual osteopaths and chiropractors who provide care to animals, there has not been a doctoral level education available to them.
The program will be available only to health professionals.
We will provide more information soon.

Congratulations to Dr Bordoni, a member of our board of directors

A Happy Professor

Why am I the happiest teacher in the world?

Because I have the best students in the world! Students who listen to my business lectures, then implement what I teach to become successful.

Including osteopath, Ann Shivas, DOMP, from Montreal, a past member of the National Soccer Team of Canada, who this week celebrated her birthday in Paris, France! And this is what she wrote me after I wished her a happy birthday:

"Thank you Dr. Wouldn't have been able to go without your business lectures! :) "

You sir, inspire!!"

First Black Female Osteopath in South Africa

A letter received from one of our students in South Africa: 

Good day Dr. Pourgol

I feel extremely excited to be writing my very first e-mail to you. I am excited because of a myriad of things, first being: I am very much enjoying the dual degree I am currently doing with your university.

If NUMSS did not exist I would not have been able to learn Manual osteopathy in South Africa…………………I have begun implementing some of the Osteo techniques (the ones I feel
comfortable to be practicing) in my treatments and man oh man, my whole treatment has changed for the most better. 

I am not only achieving positive results but I have extremely happy and impressed clientele. Wow, I have no words to describe this humbling phenomena. I have not even completed my degree yet :).
The 3rd excitement is that it seems that I will be the first osteopath of my race in this country, an amazing thing on its own, as South Africa has the history of segregation and female oppression, I am
touched by the thought that when I graduate I will be the first “black” South African and “female” to be practicing in this field in South Africa………………………..I am so grateful for this, and I do see my future gleaming.

Thank you Dr Pourgol, for standing taller when the authorities tried to chop your legs beneath you.
Lots of love and respect.
