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!
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.
A post from Adrienne Wolfe-Koukharski, our student in Montreal:
“Dr. Shahin Pourgol, I’m loving your business lectures. I took management at McGill University and your classes are 10x more interesting. Keep up the good work!”
I sincerely appreciate all your advice and your work to give us the best means to improve our odds to succeed in this new path. Your speech at graduation ceremony was very inspiring. As you said, you will always be part of the change in our lives, an important part, let me complete, and I will always be grateful to you for all the knowledge that you have transferred to us but most of all, for your devotion as a teacher and your engagement to your students to make successful people of us. Words are not enough. Thank you. .
