Year 1 Prep Course

Year 1 Prep is a PRE-COURSE that is taken online through the CAO’s Education Portal.  It is designed to give students all the basic anatomy they need before starting their first year of the osteopathy program.

Year 1 Prep is a short, self-paced course that allows students to get everything they need in time for the academic start date that they prefer. You can start it anytime, so you can get into the osteopathy program as soon as possible!

The inductions process was appropriate to prepare me for my first year with the CAO. Coming from a personal training background, I had some understanding of components of what we were gonna be doing at school, but the inductions really set me up for the course load and the level of demand that it's gonna take for me to be successful as an osteopath. By and large, it was ahead of the rest. It's the best program I have been part of.

The Inductions Program was a great introductory course. It just kind of refreshed and solidified those basic principles that you need to be successful throughout the school and that needs to stick with you. You could go into the portal whenever you wanted to and you could watch any videos if you needed help and then answer the questions.

I was really interested in the CAO because the education it offered and how the professors and even the students just go above and beyond to help everyone in the environment. It gives that sense of being involved in a community where people actually wanna see you succeed and care about you and want the best out of you

I wasn't going to go back to school for no reason. They gave me the most direct entry into what I knew I already wanted to pursue.

The CAO is a place where you grow, you grow in your intelligence, you grow in maturity, you also grow in personal strength, and work ethic, and endurance. This school really brought out my best qualities.
