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.
Dr Fernando Tassi
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.
