-Give the skills and competences necessary to become a registered osteopath
-Develop self-confidence and apply knowledge for practice within a safe environment
-Promote evidence based practice, personal and professional development
Small student cohorts allowing for a personal learning experience. Modules explore the structure and function of the human body and include psychology. Clinical skills are rehearsed and simulated in the laboratory, enabling students to develop self-confidence and put their knowledge into practice in a safe environment. Our fully functional Osteopathic Clinic is staffed by associate staff members who are qualified, practising Osteopaths. Students benefit from guest speakers who provide advice on business start-ups for those who wish to open their own practice. A unique initiative between the University and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University (ABMU) Health Board provides gives final year Osteopathy students the chance to work in an integrated NHS setting off campus.
