Qualifications and Training

In Australia, all osteopaths complete a minimum of five years university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and osteopathic techniques. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems. These university graduates hold either a double Bachelors or Master qualification.

Osteopaths are required, by law, to maintain ongoing professional development and education every year to stay in practice. In Australia, all osteopaths are required to be government registered practitioners. If an osteopath does not appear on this register they should not practice. The register can be found at: http://www.ahpra.gov.au/Registration/Registers-of-Practitioners.aspx

Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions which require referral to medical practitioners or other allied health.
