We wish you a warm welcome and invite you to discover more about the College, our mission, our history, and our programs over the course of your visit.
This visit will also allow you to learn more on the history of osteopathy, the osteopathic profession, employment outlooks and all of the services we offer to our students and the population.
Founded in 1981, the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques was the first establishment to offer an education in traditional osteopathy in Quebec and Canada. Throughout the years, we have earned an excellent reputation by developing programs that meet the highest academic standards set by the World Health Organization. These programs are aimed at healthcare professionals as well as people starting their healthcare studies in the field of osteopathy. Our programs and our graduates are recognized by the largest osteopathic association in Quebec: Ostéopathie Québec.
Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of traditional osteopathy, compared the work of an osteopath with that of an engineer of the organism. In fact, an osteopath knows anatomy and the mechanisms of physiology perfectly and in great detail. He or she is able to detect a dysfunctional zone using palpation and restore its health. He or she knows how to evaluate and treat the causes of pain and dysfunction and treats the patient as a whole. To achieve this, our programs allow students to acquire all of the knowledge, skills and know-how necessary for a professional practice that is effective and safe for the public.
The College also has a glowing reputation at the international level. Our expertise allows our teachers to give advanced courses in several countries in Europe, North America, South America and in Asia. We are regularly invited and are proud to collaborate on the improvement of educational programs on these continents.
Life at the College is dynamic. Students, teachers and members of the administration work together to constantly improve the quality of courses and life at the College. Our priority being our students, we have put a lot of energy into creating an excellent study environment. The CEO offers a campus located in the heart of downtown Montreal on Maisonneuve Boulevard with large and well-maintained classrooms. Our external clinic allows students to acquire the best practical skills possible and progress under the supervision of experienced osteopaths who will guide them throughout their learning process.
Since the founding of our College, we have acquired a lot of experience and our goal is to promote traditional osteopathy by training competent professionals. The programs that we have established, the quality of our teachers and the reputation of our Colleges clearly demonstrate the importance of choosing the right school for your education.
We thank you for your interest in traditional osteopathy and our College. We wish you an excellent visit to our website and we hope to count you among our students and future osteopaths.
