The International Academy of Osteopathy IAO | Modern & academic courses in osteopathy.

The International Academy of Osteopathy®

Modern & academic courses in osteopathy. We aim to train our students to become safe, competent and independent osteopaths.

In the past few days and weeks, the IAO has closely monitored current events relating to the spread of the coronavirus and now considers it necessary to cancel all courses in the 2019/20 academic year and to largely reschedule them in the 2020/21 academic year. Please refer to our Osteopathic Letter dated April 24, 2020 to find out how the registration procedure for the follow-up courses is intended.
