How are osteopaths regulated ?

An Osteopaths training is a full-time honors degree course over a period of 4 years.

The General Osteopathic Council  make sure that osteopaths keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date with our lifelong learning programme of continual professional development , which consists of 30 hrs a year. Without this an osteopath can not be registered.

Osteopaths are required to renew their registration each year and the GOsC provide registrants with an annual licence to practise. As part of this process, the GOsC checks that osteopaths have current professional indemnity insurance, remain in good health and of good character, and have met mandatory continuing professional development requirements

There are currently 4,814 osteopaths (as at 3 January 2014) on the UK Statutory Register of Osteopaths.
