Here is what Frances Shanahan, a student of National University of Medical Sciences in Ireland has sent to Dr. Shawn Pourgol, MBA, DC, DO, PhD.
Hi Dr Pourgol;
I have thoroughly enjoyed your teachings. Not all teachers can teach like you. So thankyou! I have my own clinic since 2004 and have grown a lot. I did 3 years with a different classic school of Osteopathy and must say I enjoy your approach greatly and agree with it as I already use many of your techniques in my practice with great success. I’m delighted to learn from you each day that I wake up. BTW I am always transforming myself just like you!
“You are the best Dr. Pourgol. I have never seen an educator, owner of any institution care so much for their students and graduates well being. You exemplify fully the laws that govern the universe wherein you should prosper and in turn you help those who helped you. I have never seen such care ever. I tell everyone about your business classes and how accurate you were. These are information for successful business foundations.”
My student Yvonne Farquharson is now continuing her manual osteopathic education at the National University of Medical Sciences (NUMSS). My 250 business lessons are what makes our osteopathy education unique and one of the reasons why my students make $150,000 per year, which is $60,000 more than what other manual osteopaths make annually.

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.
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!
