Why The London College of Osteopathic Medicine?

  • The college offers interactive small group learning in the most intensive osteopathic course in the world that exclusively teaches osteopathy to postgraduate doctors. For this reason its graduates have come from Ireland, Germany, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Greece, Australia, New Zeal and, Korea, India, the Caribbean, Kazakhstan and the USA as well as the United Kingdom.

    Some choose to work postgraduate exclusively in osteopathy, but the majority continue to work within medicine. Of these we include consultants in pain management and orthopaedics, GPs and sports doctors with national squads and professional teams, as well as lecturers in teaching hospitals.

    So, as well as providing a course that leads to registration with the UK’s General Osteopathic Council, (GOsC) who regulate the course, it also gives students access to practitioners who share their specialist interests and can demonstrate how their osteopathic training informs and develops their daily work. These LCOM graduates including Faculty are a readily available resource for coaching in career development

    Every five years the college is reviewed by the GOsC through the Quality Assurance Agency and the reports of these are available at Quality Assurance Agency and GOsC websites. This review provides the college with Recognised Qualification status as an Osteopathic Educational Institute enabling successful graduates to register with the General Osteopathic Council and use the title “Osteopath” if they wish.
