National Academy of Osteopathy (Canada) is the main reason for the international expansion of osteopathy since 2010. It is thanks to NAO that millions of people worldwide in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere have now access to this amazing miraculous health care.
From its inception, NAO has provided leadership in scientific; evidence-based manual osteopathic education. Our proud traditions of academic and clinical excellence—preparing students for achievement and success—have always been at the core of what we do, and will always remain our highest priorities.
In keeping with our motto, “Clinically Based; Practice Oriented; Scientific Manual Osteopathic Education,” we complement basic and clinical sciences with the art of caring for people.
NAO is proud of the leadership and rich heritage it contributes to the profession. The future of health care will focus on integrating disciplines, preparing competent manual osteopaths, providing effective care, and promoting health.
