A beautiful post by Nathan Lambert, one of Professor Pourgol’s students in St Catharines, Ontario (Canada): Nathan Lambert

Dr. Pourgol, I owe you everything! 
Through your online lectures you taught me to love myself, have faith in myself and what I can accomplish! 
Now life obviously isn’t just fixed, and “the blur” won’t ever just disappear, but a love for Osteopathy has pushed me to heal my soul so that I can better impact others. The core Osteopathic idea that structure governs function speaks to more than just the practice but now to my life. Because of Osteopathy I have my life.

Chiropractors love osteopathy!

We have many chiropractors who join us to study osteopathy. Dr Liza Egbogah, DC, DOMP studied chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College followed by osteopathy at the National Academy of Osteopathy. Dr Egbogah owns a multidisciplinary clinic in Toronto (Canada) as well as a line of stylish orthopedic shoes that are fashionable while being comfortable (http://www.drlizaegbogah.com/dr-liza-pump/). These pumps have been showcased on numerous TV shows in Canada. Many celebrities are her clients. We are proud to have her as our alumna. Dr Liza Egbogah DC DOMP
 
Here is what Dr Egbogah posted on her blog about why she chose to study osteopathy:
The main reason I chose to pursue osteopathy instead of chiropractic is that while chiropractic focuses primarily on spinal manipulation, osteopathy involves head to toe treatment to help the body work more efficiently. Whether someone has a wrist fracture, back pain or a knee injury, manual osteopaths will treat the entire body to optimize functioning. I have always felt that with the multitude of interconnections in the body, addressing the entire system is the only way to effectively treat.

I am happy that Honorable Justin Trudeau the prime minister of Canada and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau write me once in a while! I received these letters recently:

Shahin, your hope, hard work and unwavering support have made it possible to make a real and positive difference in the lives of Canadians. (Justin)justin-trudeau-prime-minister-canada-wife-sophie-gregoire-trudeau
It’s your support that has made this important progress possible — so thank you, Shahin. Justin and I couldn’t be more proud to be building this shared home — a better Canada — with you at our side. (Sophie)

Hello Dr. Pourgol:
I hope this message finds you in the best of health!
My name is Brandon Alleman and I recently completed the D.O. program with the National University of Medical Sciences.Brandon
I wanted to take a moment to send a heartfelt thank you to YOU and all of the Professors and staff involved in the D.O. Program.
I was highly impressed with the entire curriculum. I was particularly fond of the business courses (Business and Clinic Management).
 
Your lectures in these courses were full of practical and insightful information that I will use for years to come. I did enjoy the process of compiling my thesis which is basically support for manual therapy for the cranial nerves as it relates to chronic pain in the somatic framework.
 
I plan to take all that I have learned and begin integrating it into my practice on all levels. As you stated numerous times in your lectures…think laterally, dream big, and always strive to get better at what you are doing. My plan is to do exactly that.
 
You are a true inspiration to the Manual Osteopathy profession and have had a profound impact on my Life and my work. I do not have words to express my full gratitude.
Thank you for your tireless work to bring Manual Osteopathy to the forefront of true healthcare.
Yours in Health and Happiness,
Brandon J. Alleman, OMP, IK, HHP, D.PSc, DO

Business Management & Self Improvement in Osteopathic Education

We offer more than osteopathic education. We graduate successful manual osteopaths because we teach them everything we know about business and self improvement. Here is an email received from one of Dr Pourgol’s students in Toronto (Ontario, Canada).
 
Hi Dr. Pourgol,Vez Nkomo
When I signed up to study Osteopathy through online studies I had no idea that I would gain more than Osteopathy knowledge. Ever since I watched the Schultz hour lecture in the Business management module my life has never been the same. I am a single mother of 3 and work in a hectic health setting and now deliberately take time every week to myself to relax and allow my Frontal Cortex to work. This has helped me not only to visualize how I want to pursue my career as a Manual Osteopath after graduation but also helped me put my personal life into perspective.
I will never forget this lecture and appreciate all you do to inspire us to think bigger than our current limitations.
Thanks,
Vez Nkomo

Our Alumni Have 98% Job Satisfaction Rate

Our graduates provide the best osteopathic care possible, as we focus on techniques that are systematic, global, and scientifically proven to be effective. Our alumni routinely help chronic last resort cases that could not be helped by other health professionals.Dr Ernest Makram
 
This is why our graduates have a 98% job satisfaction rate, the highest among all other health professionals.
 
Here is a post by Dr Ernest Makram, MD, DOMP, DO (Spain) (from Oakville, Ontario, Canada), a graduate of National Academy of Osteopathy & National University of Medical Sciences (Spain):
 
“Today I had a patient, a kinesiology graduate who works as an athletic therapist. This patient was treated regularly by a chiropractor and manual osteopath (not a graduate of NAO or NUMSS), it was a challenge for me, but the response after I finished the session was “wow” (I wrote the word as it is said), I had a very good feeling that I was able to help this patient.”


 

Try manual osteopathy before surgery

Dr Mehrdad Darvish an orthopedic surgeon with post specialty fellowship in ankle & foot surgery from Germany is one of our osteopathy students.Dr mehrdad Darvish
 
In a post published recently, Dr Darvish mentions that since incorporating osteopathic care into his surgical practice, the number of surgeries as well as injections in his practice has decreased which not only decreases risks, surgical complications and pain for patients; it also reduces health care costs.
 
Osteopathy does wonders in treating chronic pain. Physicians & surgeons can cut a large number of invasive medical procedures by adding osteopathic care to their practices.
 
Here is the post from Dr Darvish:
 
I am Dr. Mehrdad Dervish, an orthopedic specialist from the University of Shahid Beheshti in Tehran, and a foot and ankle surgery, fracture and sports injury fellowship from Germany.

Did you know we have alumni in 68 countries including Vietnam?

We have expanded osteopathy to more countries than any other school in the past 140 years. Here is a post from one of our students in Vietnam.
 
My name is Stephane Laporte. I live in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I am a DOMP from NAO and a BSc (O) and DO (Spain) from NUMSS. I am also a Certified Personal Trainer (ACSM) and a Certified Triathlon Coach (ITCA).Stephane Laporte DOMP DO
To me, finding a recognized school was of primordial importance. The quality of the teaching is primordial. Over the 4 years that I have spent with the National Academy of Osteopathy and the National University of Medical Sciences, I have seen teachers that gave me a strong will to study and some highly skilled professors who would always challenge me to study more. I am now stuck in that routine of self-education, on top of the materials provided by the school, and I love it! I learn everyday more and more fascinating things and feel like I understand the body so much better than I thought. Or more like: I understand how much I didn’t understand the human body before.
 


A post  from a student of Dr Pourgol, Alina Turturica

OMG, Dr. Pourgol. I’ve watched your lecture about the power of self suggestion. I learned new things about the functioning of conscious and subconscious minds, but also laughed so hard tears ran down my face. I enjoy studying so much. I can’t wait to wake up every morning and turn on my laptop. Alina Turturica
You already inspire me on so many levels I look forward to getting to know you better and starting the program. If I thought I was excited to study osteopathy before, now I am 100% convinced that this is what I would like to do for the rest of my life.
I look forward to starting the class in September. I wish you a pleasant evening!
The above post was from a student of Dr Pourgol, Alina Turturica, a massage therapist from Romania. Dr Pourgol’s business lectures are one reason why are alumni become successful health professionals upon graduation.

Hi Dr Pourgol, Just wanted to let you know I am enjoying your online classes, I like the fact that you use the skeleton and then the actual human patient, it really drives the point home, I especially like the Ethics and Clinical Management lectures, I thought they would be boring, but your personal experiences make it very inspiring. Thanks.
