This program enables students to graduate as osteopathic manual practitioners in USA (degree is issued from United States). Upon graduation students can work legally in the United States as an osteopathic manual practitioner and open a clinic if they wish to do so. Graduates cannot call themselves osteopaths in USA and Canada as the term “osteopath” is regulated in North America and is reserved for osteopathic physicians who perform surgery and prescribe medications in USA and Canada. We teach osteopathic manual practice (European style) as compared to osteopathic medicine (American style). In most other countries such as Spain, Italy, Singapore, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Brazil, Argentina, India, Hong Kong, Mexico, South Korea, & Japan graduates can practice as osteopaths. But in North America graduate practice as osteopathic manual practitioners.
Canadian NUMSS (USA) students are eligible to receive tuition and textbooks tax credit from the Canadian Revenue Agency as NUMSS (USA) is accepted as a foreign university by the Canadian government.
Why Choose Osteopathic Manual Practice?
Osteopathic manual practice (OMP) is an effective health care system in dealing with pain originating from muscles, bones, nerves and joints. The popularity of OMP is in its ability to help patients with chronic pain of mechanical origin. Osteopathic manual practice utilizes all available modern manual therapy techniques to assess injury and diseases of muscles, bones, joints and nerves. It also offers the added benefit of hands-on assessment and treatment through a system of therapy known as osteopathic manual therapy (OMT). Osteopathic manual practitioners understand how all the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. They focus special attention on the musculoskeletal system, which reflects and influences the condition of all other body systems.
You require a high school (grade 12) or equivalent diploma to enter the Bachelor of Science in Osteopathic Manual Practice degree program offered by NUMSS (USA).
