"The institution has an outstanding reputation for their commitment to their students, their ability to produce successful leading manual osteopaths, and to the global development of the field of osteopathy. My experience studying osteopathy with the NAO thus far has been wonderful. The amount that I have learned in a few short months is incredible, and I attribute much of that to the excellent instructors and resources I have been provided with through the academy."

WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF OSTEOPATHY WEBSITENational Academy of Osteopathy is a member of the International Osteopathic Association

National Academy of Osteopathy (NAO), located in the York University Heights (Toronto) is a school founded as a Canadian institution that would offer an excellent education nationally and internationally, be a catalyst for developing a unified profession, conduct research to further the scientific basis of manual osteopathy, become the home for knowledge related to manual osteopathy and be the face of the profession to governments, third party payers, and the general public.

We are a fully accredited, professional educational institution with professional faculty and staff who are experts in their fields. NAO offers full time as well as part time European style manual osteopathy professional programs (online as well as on-campus) leading to a Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice – DOMP. The title DOMP is a Canadian title accepted by most Canadian extended health insurers. NAO is the copyright holder of this title since October 09, 2013 (copyright # 1108241, with Canadian Intellectual Property Office of Industry Canada).

NAO is licensed by the province of Ontario (license # 200607893) and the Canadian government (license # 757053-8). NAO students in Canada receive up to $5000 in tuition & textbook tax credits from the Canada Revenue Agency. The WorkBC & Ontario Works programs of the Canadian government & the Metis Nation of Ontario provide full scholarships to eligible students to study manual osteopathy at NAO.
Our alumni are eligible to join most osteopathic organizations in Canada which allow them to bill most private health insurers & auto insurers (for car accident patients) in Canada for osteopathic care.
NAO alumni are permitted to work in all countries. In most countries they work as osteopaths. However in a few countries such as Canada & USA the term "osteopath" is reserved for medical doctors who perform surgery & prescribe medications. In Canada & USA our graduates call themselves manual osteopaths or osteopathic manual practitioners.

"Choosing National Academy of Osteopathy was an easy choice. Dr. Pourgol and staff are caring and they go to extreme lengths to make sure you know the techniques, hand placements, body positions, and theory behind our work. I applaud that the school, professors, and assistants want you to succeed through advice, various business management lectures, and practical skills shown by example. "

Daniel Sheppard, RMT, DOMP
(Burlington, ON)


"The National Academy of Osteopathy has been an excellent experience thus far! Hands down, this is the best practical training I have received. Dr. Pourgol does a great job demonstrating the techniques on each of the students so that we can experience the technique first hand and know what we are supposed to feel. This allows us to communicate with the other students to see how our technique compares to the instructors. I am really enjoying the program and I look forward to going into class each day! "
