BCNO Group writes online course about osteopathy for Unifrog
The BCNO Group has once again collaborated with Unifrog, the well-known careers platform, to produce an online course about osteopathy, aimed at secondary school students.
Unifrog helps students compare all university courses, apprenticeships, and further education courses available in the UK, and helps them apply successfully.
As part of the online osteopathy course developed by the BCNO Group, students have the opportunity to explore the world of osteopathy, by learning how to take case histories, experiencing palpation and becoming familiar with what an osteopath does during an osteopathic consultation.
Students are guided through a detailed online course comprising of eight short modules where they are required to complete questions to test their knowledge. For example, the module on what an osteopath does during a consultation asks students to provide examples of what patients can do outside of their appointments to help improve joints and mobility.
Rob Thomas, BCNO Group Ambassador, who wrote the online course said, “Within six weeks of the course launching, 23 students have already completed the online osteopathy course. This shows that there is a real appetite amongst secondary school students to learn more about osteopathy. We hope that this initiative will inspire students to seriously consider a career as an osteopath and studying osteopathy.”
This two-hour online course follows the success of the videos produced by Unifrog in partnership with the BCNO Group last year, where current students and a recent graduate were filmed talking about studying osteopathy and a career as an osteopath. Since interest in the videos have been high, Unifrog approached the BCNO Group to develop an online course where students could delve in deeper to learn about the practice of Osteopathy.
