Osteopath

2nd July 2019

To be a good osteopath you need to have…

  • good communication and coordination skills
  • the ability to show empathy and work sensitively with a range of patients
  • strong observational skills, a logical approach and the ability to problem solve in order to diagnose effectively
  • initiative, independence and business awareness.

If you’re thinking of a career as an osteopath…

You must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). In order to register, you need to complete a training course that is recognised by the GOsC list of training courses. Courses are generally offered at undergraduate (BSc Hons, BOst or BOstMed) or Masters (MOst) level.

Interest-free loans for undergraduate and postgraduate courses may be available from The Osteopathic Foundation. It may also provide small grants towards fees, travel and equipment to osteopaths undertaking higher education.
