Philosophy and Objectives of the College


Osteopathy from Canada to Switzerland

In 1981, Philippe Druelle, D.O., founded the first osteopathic school in Canada, the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques de Montréal (CEO), with the help of his friend Jean Guy Sicotte, MD, D.O. This institution had as its objective uniting all the elements of Traditional Manual Osteopathy, regrouping the different therapeutic methods known to this medicine including: myofascial, osteo-articular and visceral approaches, as well as osteopathy applied to the cranial field and the cranio-sacral unit. Philippe Druelle, D.O. was the first to integrate a complete clinical methodology comprising the different therapeutic methods, allowing the students to answer the specific needs of each particular patient.

In 1991, he founded the Deutsches Osteopathie Kolleg (DOK) in Munich, with the help of Barbara Angerer, D.O. and in 1992 the Canadian College of Osteopathy (CCO) in Toronto with the help of Marie Colford, D.O. and the teaching staff of the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques de Montréal.

In 2002, Philippe Druelle together with Sandra Bartu, D.O., started the Swiss International College of Osteopathy, SICO.
