Full-time Osteopathy Program  


The full-time program offered by IEMO trains new Osteopaths in compliance with the current best and most strict international rules and regulations.

After 5 years of study, degree holders can operate in Italy and in Europe on a self-employed and legitimate basis, effectively serving within a complementary setting in the existing healthcare system.

Official requirements and certificates objectively prove the quality of IEMO curricula and, consequently, the professional skills of our graduates, thus protecting patients' health.
