Women’s Health Diploma – attend IN PERSON – THIS OPTION IS NOT ONLINE!

Women's Health Diploma - by face to face blocks in Lancashire and clinics in London

The F2F programme consists of all your lectures (that the other hybrid course does online) are doing in person.  You also do lots of techniques during each F2F block, and you still then have 4 days of focused clinical experience on top!

So, for year one, the certificate year, you have 4 3-day lecture blocks in Nelson, Lancashire, and one 4-day clinical block in Ashby De La Zouche, in Leicestershire.

For year two, the format is the same - 4, 3-day blocks of lectures / techniques in Nelson, then one 4-day clinic block in Ashby.

After completing the second year you can gain the Diploma.

After either the certificate or the Diploma you can join whombs.com, which is a practitioners support group and a public information website / service (which is being built up gradually), to support you and the public to know more about osteopathy and women's health, and care of infants and children.

Whombs is open only to registered osteopaths (in your country of practice).

APEL

APEL - this is only possible with prior training / experience (please discuss with us your suitability).  Then you do the 4 3-day blocks in Nelson and the 4 day clinic in Ashby De La Zouche.

You will need to have done some additional womens health training beyond the Mummy MOT for example,. as if your womens health experience is otherwise basic, we do need you to be familiar with a range of neurophysiological and other osteopathic constructs, so sometimes we recommend you join year one, so you get the full picture!

To ensure knowledge alignment in year two, there is a requirement to do some online with this F2F version - this acts as an extra resource to the 4 3-day blocks of in person theory that summarises all the online material and gives you all the hands on to go with in, in preparation for the advanced clinical block.  It also acts as your ongoing learning guide and consenting orientation module.
