The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy is proud to maintain integral partnerships with some of the most highly respected osteopathic organizations around the world. Our goal is to work collectively with these associations to improve the international standards of osteopathic education and to protect the core principles and practices of classical osteopathy.
This non-profit organization is committed to promoting the highest standards of osteopathic care while protecting the patient community from malpractice. The association encourages the ongoing professional development of its members and ethical compliance in all areas of osteopathic clinical practice. Members are expected to have the mandatory four years of osteopathic education from an accredited institution and abide by all applicable regulatory measures.
Upon graduation, students from The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy are granted direct entry into this highly respected European association which was founded by Teddy Hall and John Wernham during the 1950s in Maidstone, England. The institution was founded “to bring together in one body those members of our profession who are prepared to interpret and apply osteopathy as it was laid down by Andrew. T. Still,” paying homage to classical osteopathy philosophies and principles.
The partnership between The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy and The European Institute of Classical Osteopathy has successfully worked to broaden student horizons by facilitating exciting exchange and placement opportunities in Italy and Canada. The institute encourages the collaboration of international teachers in an effort to raise the educational standards of osteopathy and provide students with a complete and dynamic learning experience.
Under the direction of the highly experienced Dr. Masaru Haruyama, this association offers comprehensive educational courses and advanced study programs for osteopathic practitioners in Japan. Dr. Masaru Haruyama is an occasional visitor at The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy and is committed to sharing instrumental learning resources, methods and practices in order to support ongoing advancements in osteopathic education.
