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 of Medical Osteopaths. The General Osteopathic Councll (GOsC) recognises the course for registration purposes, and reviews the course every five years. The current period of recognition was renewed without condition in 2014.
Most medical insurers, after a variable period of practice post qualification, accept graduates as medical specialists and as osteopaths.
Some students choose to also take the Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine (DMSM) which is run by the British Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine
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 that is obtained in the early years of professional independent practice.
