The Admissions Process
The CAO Admissions Process Is An Easy Three Steps!
1. Get in touch
Contact us filling out the form and we can help you get started with details on the program outline, start dates, tuition, and admissions process.
2. Take part in a Webinar
It’s important to us that all applicants connect with us personally by participating in a webinar. Get your questions answered, watch student testimonials, see a curriculum outline, and see what faculty has to say! This is an informal way to see if the CAO is right for you–and there is no obligation to apply.
3. Complete an Application Package
Once we’ve connected one on one, if you love what you see and want to become a CAO student, the last step is to participate in an informal interview and submit your enrollment paperwork!

Post-secondary-Level Status (one)

An interview to assess suitability for both the intensive program format and for autonomous professional practice
The CAO provides graduates of its program with an M. OMSc designation, which is a post-graduate diploma. The M. OMSc designation is not a degree. In Canada, there are no Canadian universities that offer degrees in osteopathy, rather osteopathic education is almost exclusively offered by private colleges.
