Management of health and disability

Many people with a disability or long-term health condition are able to undertake osteopathic education and training, achieve a Recognised Qualification, and practise osteopathy with or without adjustments to support their practice.

Guidance for students with a disability or health conditionWe publish guidance on the management of health and disability for students and osteopathic educational institutions.

This was developed by external experts in equality and health education, after holding focus groups and interviews with staff in osteopathic educational institutions.

We are committed to equality and want to ensure that disabled people who have the potential to become independent osteopathic practitioners can consider education, training and a career in osteopathy.
