Panta Rhei is a well-known institute for postgraduate development in osteopathy and has more than 15 years of experience in pediatric osteopathy. René Zweedijk is the head of a well experienced team of osteopathic teachers.
For the course in Denmark we have chosen a unique design with a combination of e-learnings and physical/practical meetings. In the e-learning sessions we will focus on the theoretical aspect, whilst the physical meeting content will be based on osteopathy in practice. For both sessions the participants will get the handouts in advance to give an opportunity to prepare themselves. The online meetings last about an hour and can be watched life or later in time. During the physical meetings, the emphasis will be on osteopathic practice with the child from birth to adolescence as the central subject.
The course consists of 7 modules of 4 to 5 days. Every 5th day is a clinic day. (Practical days with young patients we treat together.)
For the diploma osteopathy in pediatrics, participants have to hand in two written case studies at the end of the course and have to show a treatment of a child for a two-member jury. There will be a possibility to film the treatment in your own practice and present the film via Skype for a two-member jury. The jury will look for safety, differential diagnosis, the approach towards the child and parents, osteopathic thinking, contact and the treatment itself.
