Ideal Student Attributes

What Do We Look For In A Student

Past Academic performance is not the only marker of a good student. The CAO looks for so much more in a potential student.

  • Work ethic is key; the study of classical osteopathy does not come easily. It requires hours of focus and determination to get through the rigors of this program.
  • Curiosity in the body is important; all of our students are deeply interested in anatomy, physiology and how the body is connected.
  • A natural ability to problem solve is integral; classical osteopathic diagnosis is about finding solutions to problems presenting in the body not about memorizing techniques.
  • A passion for helping people is a must; it is really the only reason to enter into this profession. It must propel everything you do.
