Even after our students are graduated, we just can’t seem to say goodbye to them. With our alumni association we want to offer our graduates a platform with which they can easily stay in contact with each other and with the IAO. We hope to create a solid network of passionate osteopaths who share their knowledge and experiences. With this association we hope to cross borders between all our students form different countries. Communication will be mainly in English, but member are free to use their mother-tongue.
As a member of the alumni association you enjoy the following benefits:
You receive access to our online e-learning platform “Alumni” on the eCampus. You will be able to find and download, amongst others, all the e-books and flipbooks.
You will be allowed into our closed Facebook group “Alumni”, with which we can easily keep you up to date about news that could be interesting for you. This group also gives you the chance to make contact with other graduated colleagues.
