Vaughan, Brett ORCID: 0000-0002-8623-4558, Macfarlane, Christopher ORCID: 0000-0002-0281-8530 and Florentine, Prue (2013) Clinical education in the osteopathy program at Victoria University. International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine, 17 (3). pp. 199-205. ISSN 1746-0689


Health professionals typically undertake some form of clinical training prior to graduation from a pre-professional education program. This can take place in a variety of settings including hospitals, out-patient clinics and in private healthcare facilities. Whilst there is a substantial body of literature that describes clinical education in areas such as medicine and nursing, there is very little in osteopathy. The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of clinical education in the osteopathy program at Victoria University. It is anticipated this will provide a basis for further discussion and research into an area that has limited coverage in the literature.
