The CAO’s Student Clinic is a not-for-profit that provides free osteopathic treatment to the community of Hamilton, Ontario and surrounding greater Toronto area (GTA). Patients can come to the clinic for an assessment or for ongoing care. CAO students give back to the community while continuing their education process at the school and developing their clinical skills in an environment that benefits everyone. Treatment sessions are fully insured and professionally supervised by our experienced and certified teaching instructors.
All CAO students are required to complete 1000 hours of clinic training before graduation, making a Student clinic an extremely valuable part of our students education. Students have the opportunity to experience a clinical setting before graduating and started their own practice; this allows students to gain hands on skills, such as clinical time management, patient management, booking/scheduling, insurance forms, waiver forms, and more.

Rob Johnston discussed and described osteopathy and performed live diagnosis and demonstrations. Lori interviewed multiple students and asked why they chose osteopathy.
Our student clinic is located on 132 Melvin Street in Hamilton, Ontario
“I first started going to the CAO Student Clinic, as I had been having ongoing mid-back pain. I had tried chiropractors, and massage therapists, and both provided little (and very short-term) relief. Since I have been going to the CAO, I have found that I always get some relief from the treatments, and that relief lasts longer and longer between visits. The students are terrific – very knowledgeable, and I feel very confident in the treatment I am receiving. I would highly recommend osteopathy and the CAO Student Clinic to anyone!”
