The college is Associated with The Northern Institute of Massage, Bury in Gtr Manchester which is one of the biggest sports injury colleges in Europe.

The Irish College of Osteopathic Medicine is unique in that it is the only college in Irealnd that offers clinical hours as part of the curriculum, this ensures students get a hands on approach to dealing with patients and the injuries that are presented in clinical situations.
Lecturers at this college are all fully qualified in their field of practice, the tutors are all Osteopaths, Medical Doctors, Radiographers and Manipulative Therapists and all run full time busy clinics. We believe this is a must for any tutor, as he / she must “be living the job to teach the experience”
