"We are osteopaths, clinicians, scientists, educators and entrepreneurs working together to promote tomorrow’s osteopathic best practice and everyone better life today."

Pascal J. Grolaux, DO, owner and president of The Institute for Osteopathic Studies & Research

Based in the vivid city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Institute covers a full-range of courses (online and onsite) across all evidence-based and more. With the vision to be an highly ranked Osteopathic Continuing Education Institution in Canada, we teach a variety of classes spanning the introductory, intermediate and advanced levels in the field of osteopathy and other health disciplines.

At The Institute for Osteopathic Studies & Research, students receive so much more than an ordinary post graduate education. We pride ourselves on creating a unique, exciting environment that embraces all types of learners and promotes growth both academically and personally. As strategically located and attached to a dynamic healthcare clinic, we are in a proper environment to initiate research projects linked with our education program as well as using the patients pool for clinical demonstrations.

Educating the public from our communities is as important to us as promoting excellence in postgraduate education. Indeed, we believe that it is our mission to help people to reconnect to themselves and their environment. Therefore we will offer specific body-mind-spirit orientated training (indoor and outdoor) for everyone.
