My background is an osteopath DO, graduated from the School of ATMAN. This training is approved by the Ministry of Health. This school is one of the ten schools in France able to award the national diploma of osteopathy. It is included in RNCP at level 1, which means that the Ministry of Labour recognises it as an equivalence of 5 years after the Baccalauréat.
Osteopaths undergo training which includes more than 5000 hours of theoretical courses in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics as well as practical courses on osteopathic techniques, three years of practice in an osteopathic clinic and multiple placements in hospitals, sports clubs and companies.
