The Admissions Committee, in general, seeks to matriculate students who best suit the philosophies and goals of the Academy. National Academy of Osteopathy attempts to select students who have strong academic records and who demonstrate the motivational and personal characteristics suitable for a career in Manual Osteopathy.
Service and a caring attitude are important characteristics of a future Osteopathic Manual Practitioner. The Academy employs a rolling admissions process; therefore, early application could increase the applicant’s probability for acceptance. The Academy encourages campus visits for all applicants and reserves the right to require an interview.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
A student must possess the following abilities, with or without reasonable accommodation, for completion of the professional diploma program in osteopathic manual practice:
All students, with or without reasonable accommodation, must carry out laboratory and clinical assignments, including providing osteopathy treatments to clients. Qualified persons with disabilities, with or without reasonable accommodation, must be able to pass oral, written and practical examinations, and meet all of the clinical requirements of the Academy.
It is in the best interests of both the student and the Academy to assess the degree of limitation caused by disability. However, the Academy will make the final determination of whether or not an individual meets all qualifications for study at the Academy.
Persons who have been convicted of a misdemeanour of a violent criminal or sexual nature or any felony will be prohibited from professional health care practice in many jurisdictions. National Academy of Osteopathy will deny admission to applicants with such convictions. The Academy therefore reserves the right to conduct a criminal background check on applicants or on any enrolled student at any time in the program.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to be aware of the entrance requirements and to ensure that they are met prior to enrollment. If National Academy of Osteopathy determines at any time that requirements are not met in full, the student will not be allowed to enroll or to continue at the Academy.
