Letter from AOA
NUMSS (USA) received a letter just now from American Osteopathic Association. They asked us to remind our graduates in USA, that they must not call themselves osteopaths or osteopathic physicians. As we have thought you numerous times in our lectures, in Canada and USA you must call yourself "osteopathic manual practitioner". This also goes for UK, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland and South Africa. In the rest of the world you can call yourself an osteopath, but never an osteopathic physician. The laws of each country can change and you must always follow what the law says in the jurisdiction you practice.
