ICOM has always placed at the center of its activity the issue of a training of excellence, capable of responding to the three fundamental principles for the osteopath of the future: Quality of Education, Internationality and Security of the Degree.
At the center of these three principles, the high professionalism, experience and know-how of absolute value, have allowed ICOM to become today the most important training reality in Italy and among the most established in Europe, but also the most extended with 8 research centers on the national territory, a head office in Malta, an osteopathic clinic, accredited by the English Professional Register, ICOM at Nescot, in London.
Leadership that is also confirmed in the educational program offered, being the only osteopathic training reality in Europe that allows its students to train in three European countries: Italy, Malta (training + clinical internship) and England (exclusively clinical training).
full time | extended pathway
With the issue of accreditation by the Maltese Ministry as Higher Education Institution (HEI), ICOM has set itself the goal of continuing to offer on the territory of Maltese to all its students not only a level of excellence training and in line with other European realities (for this a 4 year + 1 year training) but also of the qualifications valid and spent on European territory and Commonwealth, including Italy.
(Please note that in Italy, with the arrival of the Implementing Decrees, related to the recognition of Osteopathy as a Health Profession, it will no longer be possible for Italian Private Institutes to provide training in Italy because this will be exclusive to Italian Universities. ICOM becomes a European Higher Education Institute and not exclusively Italian.)
The Full Time course is developed over 4 + 1 Academic Years and is held between the Malta headquarters and the Italian Learning Centers.
The training program includes a four-year period (Malta / Italy) with the BSc.Ost Hons Degree in Osteopathy and a further academic year, the 5th year, carried out entirely in Italy oriented to the acquisition of additional skills in the clinical / practical area.
