Committees

Osteopathy Australia welcomes members to participate in our wide-ranging, representative committees. We are very fortunate to have experienced clinicians and profession leaders share their knowledge in discussions and projects, which continue to grow the awareness of osteopathy in Australia and around the world. 

Please contact us to connect with committee members.

The Engagement Committee was formed to create a closer link between clinicans and the staff here at Osteopathy Australia, through effective public relations highlighting the great work the profession provides to the general public. Communicating via email, teleconference and face-to-face, the committee is reactive and ever-evolving, as its importance to the growth of osteopathy in Australia continues to develop.

With the shifting forms of media attraction, the EC now extends its focus to Social Media and changing forms of traditional media.
