About Animal Osteopathy at University of Greenwich

Our programme consists of 6 taught courses and a year of project planning anddissertation that link together to create an MSc Animal Osteopathy (Canine & Equine). Three courses taken alone results in a PG Certificate and six courses, a PG Diploma.

Animal osteopathy is a relatively new and exciting field of osteopathic medicine and the European School of Osteopathy is the first UK Osteopathic Education Institution to offer validated programmes of study. Our programmes are open to qualified osteopaths as postgraduate awards.

Because of the nature of the work, life as an animal osteopath (AO) is both varied and highly rewarding. Some AO's work freelance, moving yard to yard, whilst others work side by side with paraprofessionals and vets.

If you want to work with animals and have an interest in anatomy, biomechanics and the use of manual therapy to help restore and support function in domestic pets and horses, animal osteopathy could be the career path for you.

Integrating the knowledge of osteopathy with veterinary science, behavioural science and methods used in rehabilitation, animal osteopaths add real value to any veterinary team and a gentle non-invasive solution to many functional conditions.

Canine pathways are taught at the ESO, Boxley, Maidstone, Kent. Equine pathways are taught at a mixture of locations, to include: the ESO, Hadlow College, Hadlow and Knightsplace Farm Equestrian Centre, Rochester.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To educate osteopaths in the field of animal osteopathy (namely canine and equine osteopathy)
  • To produce animal osteopathic practitioners who are independent, safe and highly skilled
  • To graduate our students with a professional level of competencies that support critical thinking and reflective practice
  • To produce graduates who are capable of contributing to the field of animalosteopathy in an evidence-based fashion.
