Faculty Overview

Overview

The faculty of the CEO and the CSO Manual Practice -Vancouver are directed by its president, Philippe Druelle, D.O., formerly of France and now living in Montreal. Mr. Druelle has successfully founded seven Osteopathic colleges in Canada and Europe. Together, these Colleges constitute the Association of Traditional Osteopathic Colleges of Canada (ATOCC). Membership in this association ensures that the educational programs provided have uniform standards of curriculum, teaching and evaluation.

The member colleges of this association guarantee that their faculty hold a valid diploma or doctorate in Osteopathy, and that they have completed mandatory theory, practical and clinical examinations. In addition, members have submitted and defended an original piece of Osteopathic research in the field of either philosophical, clinical or experimental Osteopathy before an International jury of Osteopaths and/or Osteopathic researchers.

Steeped in experience, many of the CSO's faculty have had the opportunity to study Osteopathy with some of the most distinguished Osteopaths in the world. These Osteopaths include Anne Wales, Thomas Schooley, and Viola Frymann, all of whom were first generation students of William Garner Sutherland, DO.  Dr. Sutherland, who himself was a graduate of the class of 1900 from the original college of Osteopathy in Kirksville, Missouri, studied under Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of Osteopathy.

Each faculty member is invited to attend the three International Symposiums offered each year by the ATOCC. During these Symposiums, the faculty members have the opportunity to study with the world's leading Osteopaths.

Additionally, the CEO/CSO offers educational opportunities to each faculty member who is currently teaching. The CEO/CSO recognizes the four different learning styles through which adults learn. Training in adult education improves the faculty’s teaching methods so that lessons are delivered and received more effectively.

Membership in the Academic Council ensures that the faculty is updated yearly on the College's goals and educational system. In addition, the CSO Manual Practice-Vancouver is registered with PCTIA, who regulates basic education standards for registered private career training institutions in British Columbia, and upholds the established standards of quality that must be met by all registered and accredited institutions.
