Lee Jarvis, Graduate, Nursing Background

“I graduated from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in 2013. I wanted to become an osteopathic manual practitioner because I had some really good experience with other osteopathic manual therapist already working in the field. Everything could be explained rationally, it made a lot of sense. I saw the good that they could do essentially, right away. To anyone interested in coming into the CAO, you should know that because of the excellent training you get, you’re gonna have great results. Of course, this training is very difficult. You’re trained very intensely, very rigorously, but the results are really undeniable. It’s everything you wanted and sometimes a lot more than you ever expected. It’s important to understand that it’s a lot of hard work, but at the same time it’s completely worth it.”

Grace Thompson, Year 4 Student, Nursing Background

“My name is Grace Thompson, I’m in fourth year. I’ve been a registered nurse for many years. I had a way of seeing the world, seeing what illness was. I think it’s way that health care is going, that we need to treat proactively, rather than retroactively. The CAO Experiences has changed the way that I see wellness..”

Adelina Bozek, Student, Medical School Graduate

“When it comes down to it what’s most important to me is science, and I love that. I didn’t even know that I was interested in osteopathy to begin with because I graduated from medical school. All throughout medical school I wasn’t really connecting with it. In medical school because you have to memorize everything, things don’t sink in. If you’re memorizing things you’re not able to make connections. I like the idea of going deeper and getting to the root of the problem and osteopathy is all about understanding the connections in order to be able to treat a patient. It’s very challenging at times but they’re only doing it because they want you to push the limits of what you’re able to do.”
