Letter from certified naprapath, Dr Fernando Tassi a graduate of doctor of naprapathy (DN) program of National University of Medical Sciences and a member of the Canadian Naprapathic Association:Dr Fernando Tassi

Naprapathy, a great program for manual osteopaths
In countries where manual osteopathy is regulated and where there are many manual osteopaths, studying naprapathy to become a connective tissue specialist offers a great way to distinguish yourself from other manual osteopaths & manual therapists.

Here is a letter from certified naprapath, Dr Fernando Tassi:

Hello Dr. Pourgol,
This is Fernando Tassi Salati, recent DN program graduate.
I am writing to you to thank you for the opportunity to study this great program.
Naprapathy changed my way of treating and taking care of people and it has opened many doors for my future; thanks to this degree I received 3 very good job offers, two from France and one from Italy. I decided to accept the job offer in Italy which means that after 6 years I’ll move back to my homeland!
Best regards and have a great day.


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! 👍🚴‍♂️

💖I received a beautiful letter from a student 💖Dr-Shawn-Pourgol-Bobcaygeon (1)


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.

A letter by Dr Daria who attended Dr Shawn Pourgol’s presentation at the first public meeting of the Coalition for the Regulation of Manual Osteopathy in Ontario:

“It was my pleasure to be a witness of the historical moment in regulation of osteopathy in Ontario, everything was to the point; your presentation was nourishing to the brains and inspirational to the soul.Daria
I am, as always, proud to see you clearing new ways for osteopathy as a profession. I believe that due to your efforts manual Osteopathy not only will be elevated as a profession, but also will take its honorable place in the hearts of the public.
I was delighted to see how manual osteopaths in the end of the presentation became your devoted listeners. I was delighted to notice in their eyes sparkles of inspiration you generously planted.
I am sure that soon everyone will realize the significance of osteopathic regulation and necessity of a unified approach in this matter. Your hard work will be appreciated.“

Did you know Dr Pourgol’s sister Shirin is a manual osteopath?Testimonial from Shawna RobbinsShirin Poorgol

Here is a testimonial she received from her patient Shawna Robbins that is suffering from chronic pain.
Osteopathy offers the most effective treatment system for chronic pain. Most patients manual osteopaths see are the last resort cases. They truly do miracles with their hands, treating cases where all else failed.

A post from kinesiologist and osteopathy student, Christina Anderson from Beeton, Ontario: Christina Anderson - Kinesiologist

“Dr. Pourgol is the best teacher I have ever had the pleasure to know. I have never met such an intelligent man. He is such a positive influence in my life and I feel grateful everyday to have someone with such influence guiding me.”

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. 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.

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.
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 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 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.




Our 2nd Student Working in a Hospital

Stephane Laporte DOMP DO VietnamWe have many students working in hospitals as physiotherapists & physicians. However until now we just had one student who was working as an osteopath in a hospital in UAE.

This is an email sent today to Dr Pourgol by Stephane:  

This email is to send you a heartfelt thank you for your guidance in the field of Osteopathy. Thanks to you and your education, I am now working in a major JCI accredited hospital in the physical therapy and rehabilitation department. It’s a great experience, working in a team of therapists. This is of course the very beginning, and I look forward to grow fast in personal development and to apply the lessons from the NUMSS business lectures.”

Testimonial from NUMSS DO student in Trinidad & Tobago

NUMSS student Dr Randy Nagir - Trinidad & Tobago

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.

Dr Randy Nagir, ND (San Fernando, Trinidad & Tobago), 3rd semester National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) student – Doctor of Osteopathy program


Did you know many osteopaths from other schools study osteopathy again with National University of Medical Sciences?


These osteopaths join us mainly to benefit from the 200 business management lectures Dr Pourgol teaches to osteopathy students. These lessons create wealthy osteopaths.
Here is a message from NUMSS Irish student Luka Samarzija, who is now studying at National University of Medical Sciences.
“I joined NUMSS this year for the BSc (Osteopathy) degree. My two previous years were with another osteopathy College.
I must say that I see a big difference from my previous school compared to NUMSS, and it’s for the better. Where I studied before it was very stressful, but also expensive.
Then, by chance of luck I found NUMSS and now I must say that it really feels like I’m in the right place after a long time. A University that works in the best interest of their students, promoting them and paving the way for them. So I decided to talk about the osteopathy degree at NUMSS to as many as possible, to get as many people graduate from NUMSS here in Ireland, to show that there is a valid alternative.”
