The current Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has required the health sector to adapt rapidly. Osteopaths and other musculoskeletal specialists face difficult challenges in these times of social distancing and minimal physical contact. There is a rapidly growing demand for musculoskeletal professionals to develop the skills to remotely assess and manage their patients. 

In order to help the UCO is facilitating a free series of webinars for osteopaths and other musculoskeletal professionals. 

These free webinars have been developed in collaboration by David Hohenschurz-Schmidt, University College of Osteopathy (UCO) alumnus and currently sponsored PhD student at Imperial College, with Dr Jerry Draper-Rodi, Head of Continuing Professional Development and Senior Research Fellow at the UCO, and Andrew Terry, UCO alumnus.
