Australia’s National Registration and Accreditation Scheme began on 1 July 2010. Practitioners from 14 health professions are regulated under the scheme. Since 2011, students have been registered under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory.
If you are enrolled in an approved program of study, you do not need to apply for registration. Education providers will pass on your details to the Osteopathy Board of Australia for registration. The National Board will register you for the duration of study, or until you are no longer enrolled. There are no fees for student registration.
