Advanced Practice

These pages will help you to understand advanced practice recognition. Information is included on what recognition is, what it involves and how it can help with your career journey. If you wish to proceed with gaining recognition, you will also find guidance on what the application process involves, specific application forms, fees and terms and conditions.  It is important to understand this range of information before proceeding with an application.

Please be advised, through 2020 two pathways will exist for members seeking titling and recognition of an advanced scope of practice in a focus area, i.e. paediatrics, pain management, occupational health, exercise rehabilitation, sports practice (vocational pathway AND tertiary pathway). Currently, we have a tertiary pathway available for eligible members in pain management and paediatrics. Tertiary means you must have a further university degree in the focus area. The soon to be vocational pathways are designed for members seeking advanced recognition without a further university degree beyond osteopathy who can demonstrate relevant work experience, professional development, professional references and work samples.
