Welcome to the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Practitioners, the official destination for all your osteopathic needs. At our association, we bring together two distinct types of osteopaths: the highly-qualified Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) and the proficient Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (DOMP). While DOs are trained physicians in the United States, our DOMPs receive their esteemed Diploma of Osteopathic Manual Practice through European-style training. Our mission is to promote the recognition of osteopathic practice in Ontario while upholding the highest standards of education and practice. We place utmost importance on the safety, ethics, and well-being of our patients, ensuring their rights and interests are safeguarded at all times. By joining our association, you gain access to invaluable opportunities for continuing education and professional development. Together, let’s elevate the field of osteopathy in Ontario to new heights.
Vision and Goals:
The Ontario Association of Osteopathic Practitioners aims to promote recognition of the osteopathic practice in Ontario, develop and maintain a standard of education and practice, ensure safe and ethical osteopathic practice for the protection of the public’s interest and rights, and provide members with continuing education and professional development opportunities.
