Welcome to the Osteopathic Foundation
The Osteopathic Foundation (The OF) is a charitable trust set up to advance osteopathic practice by funding education, research and by promoting productive relationships both within and outside of the profession, for the benefit of the public.
The Foundation achieves this through the provision of interest-free student loans to assist with the cost of osteopathic training and research grants, and have provided almost £700,000 of support since 2001.
The OF also funds the work of the National Council for Osteopathic Research – www.ncor.org.uk
