Philosophy and Objectives of the College


Philosophy of the College

To assamble and preserve the heritage of Osteopathy, to give a complete training to health care professionals based on practice and "know-how".

Our objectives are:

  1.     Quality training to allow students to become complete practitioners, who are effective and safe.

  2.     To convey the knowledge, "know-how" and the means to obtain an appropriate palpation for each kind of tissue. To identify the different rhythms in order to respond to the needs of each part of the organism.

  3. To offer opportunities for students to learn in the best possible way, by developing the expression of their potential.

  4. To promote a philosophy of the Human Being, based on the respect of each individual from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, regardless of his religion, culture or choices.

  5. To encourage research that will allow an understanding of the physiological mechanisms that make us unique as functional unit; to relieve suffering and to develop in the student the objectivity, intuition and creativity, that is necessary for their future profession.

  6. To instil the sense of tradition and research.

  7. To encourage graduates to become teachers and pass on the tradition in their turn.

Each college within the Canadian Traditional Osteopathic Colleges Association, opens its doors to other international osteopathic institutions and its professors who wish to share their knowledge.

The different colleges maintain relations with several universities and hospital departments.
