Last weekend the University College of Osteopathy hosted an international education conference, to mark the first hundred years of osteopathic education in the UK.
Held in London, the conference brought together osteopathic educators from across the UK and overseas to share ideas, innovations and good practice, and to address important questions about the current position and future direction of osteopathic education.
Delegates heard keynote addresses from Dr Gary Fryer, Associate Professor of Victoria University, Melbourne; and Simeon London, Dean of Academic Development at the UCO; followed by a number of fascinating platform presentations exploring a range of subjects.
Sharon Potter, UCO Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education), brought the conference to a close with an overview of the quality journey to becoming a University College with degree-awarding powers: a journey the UCO is proud to have successfully navigated over the past few years.
The day ended with a drinks reception, offering an opportunity for delegates to network and reflect on key themes of the day.
Our grateful thanks to everyone involved in making the event such a success.
