Unitec Institute of Technology - Department of Osteopathy

As part of the journey towards becoming a qualified and practising osteopathic practitioner, students are required to undertake a small research project. While many projects are directly related to osteopathy and involve osteopathic treatments, other studies may be more exploratory and involve studies about pain, perceptions of well being, exercise, breathing, life as a new family etc...

If you would like to be kept up to date with the research opportunities available through Unitec Osteopathy then please follow our group! Please feel free to contact with regard to research questions using the form below, or visit our clinic website here.
