Postgraduate Training in
Paediatrics and Osteopathy

Two-year seminar series (Part 1 – 5)

The two-year seminar series shows how the most common diseases in childhood can be treated from a pediatric and osteopathic perspective. The foundation of osteopathic treatments can be found in the developmental movements of the embryonic period, the knowledge of the growth and maturation processes, all the way up to the beginning of adulthood.

Depending on the age of the child, the diseases, diagnostic, therapeutic and emergency medical treatment measures are taught from a pediatrician’s point of view.
