Graduate Testimonial on the program at the CAO
By: Sarah Gagnon, CAO Grad

Aside from the excellent in-depth study of anatomy and physiology from an osteopathic perspective, the greatest gifts the CAO has given me as an osteopathic professional are the physical stamina and mental fortitude required to run a busy practice.

Endless hours spent practicing osteopathic structural diagnosis and treatment can push students to the point of extreme mental, physical and emotional exhaustion at times. However, practicing this craft in a state of deep exhaustion allows the operator's sensory web to proliferate quickly thus leading to better palpation skills. Furthermore, the opportunity to practice osteopathy in this state, helps the student develop mental and emotional strength.

CAO students are excellent operators upon graduation and so, evolve very busy practices quickly. This can be physically and mentally demanding as some patients challenge the therapist throughout their course of treatment. My CAO experience gave me the skills necessary to be an effective and efficient operator, while keeping a cool, professional disposition regardless of how many patients I've treated that day, or the level of mental and emotional stress they bring to the treatment room. Such skills are critical if one is to have a long successful career. Thank you CAO!
