The Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice (DOMP) is a Canadian title copyrighted by Dr. Pourgol in Canada and the United States.
The Canadian College of Osteopathy & the National Academy of Osteopathy are the only two schools authorized to issue this title.
Recently it has been brought to our attention that there is a school breaching the copyright Act by offering this title without proper authorization.
Osteopathic manual practitioners who are not graduates of CCO & NAO are not authorized to use the DOMP title. Practicing with the DOMP title without proper authorization is a breach of the American and Canadian Copyright Acts and these practitioners may face legal action.
