  • Program overview

The Sutherland Academy's teaching respects the principles of paradigm complexity or systematic approach. We therefore avoid linear or sequential education. Subjects are studied and seen again in a different way and at different levels so that they can be understood and assimilated. Subjects are treated on the whole and not science by science (ex.: anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the rachis). Taught concepts are then replaced in other contexts in order to facilitate their understanding.

Self-education is an essential tool at the Academy, that is, that every training is preceded by a knowledge regulation, so that during training a common basic language for all can be used. In that way, a large part of basic theory is already acquired by students and so the teacher can go forward with more complex concepts, a large chunk of the training time can thus be recovered for practice.

The program over six years was built by GUY VOYER DO so that from the start of training, after only a seminar, students are already able of putting into practice notions and newly acquired skills. Palpation manipulations qualities evolving during the training, techniques asking for more dexterity and feeling are studied in later years so they will be much easier to assimilate.

The objective of the preparation of a report is “to train in research by researching”. The qualified student must prove that he is able to undertake a research project in a relatively autonomous way. He will nevertheless be supported by a project guide who will guide him in the writing process.

This written report will have to be done about 4 months before the presentation and defense in front of a jury composed of members from the Quebec Sutherland Academy and from other Canadian and international osteopathy schools.

* Note : a training in research methodology is highly recommended. It is either two - 2 days seminars, or an online training. Consult your advisor for more information.
