NUMSS (USA) is committed to providing and maintaining such an environment through its policies, regulations and education programs.
This policy applies to all members of the NUMSS (USA) community in their interaction with other members of the NUMSS (USA) community and supersedes the Sexual Harassment Policy & Procedures and the Equal Opportunity Policy, except where those policies are incorporated by specific reference in an agreement with a unionized group and/or dealt with by legislation. The NUMSS (USA) community includes employees, faculty, students, visitors, volunteers, and other individuals who work, visit, or study at NUMSS (USA).
Nothing contained in this policy shall derogate from the rights, privileges or obligations of the Institution to deal with the issues in a formal manner which then obviates the necessity of dealing with the complaint through dispute resolution. NUMSS (USA) shall provide a work and learning environment free of discrimination and harassment exercised by or against an individual by reason of race, colour, ancestry, place of birth, national origin, citizenship, creed, religious or political affiliation or belief, sex, sexual orientation, physical attributes, family relationship, age (except as consistent with applicable legislation), physical or mental illness or disability, place of residence, or record of offences.

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)
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)

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,
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.
World famous natural health expert, American naprapath & osteopath, Dr Daniel Nuzum (from Idaho, USA) is one of our alumni as well as being one of our professors. Dr Nuzum also serves as a member of Board of Governors of National University of Medical Sciences. Thank you Dr Nuzum for this kind and beautiful post.
Today I wish to honor my good friend Dr. Shahin Pourgol. He is an amazing Doctor, friend and President of a University. He has impeccable integrity and is always striving to improve himself, his family and his University. Thank you Dr. Pourgol for all that you do for us at both National Academy of Osteopathy and the National University of Medical Sciences!
