After success in their final examination, students are awarded Membership of the London College of Osteopathic Medicine (MLCOM), and are eligible to join the post-graduate Association for Medical Osteopathy. The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) recognises the course for registration purposes, a Recognised Qualification (RQ) and reviews the course every five years. Please note on qualifying GOSC run their own checks on applicants to the osteopathic register, such as DBS checks, references.
Courses, seminars and practice
Apart from the Membership course, the college organises educational activities for its own graduates and medical practitioners. Seminars are held at the College for its members. Many members are active educationally in both under-graduate and post-graduate education.
Graduates of the course often work in the Osteopathic Association clinic part-time as they value working with other osteopaths not least because of the support and mentoring that is obtained in the early years of professional independent practice.
By overlapping memberships, co-operation or congruence of objectives, the College maintains informal links with the British Association of Sports and Exercise Medicine, Institute of Osteopathy, and Society for Back Pain Research. The College welcomes, by appointment, medical visitors who wish to see the clinic functioning and meet trainees and tutors.
