Accreditation standards

The Osteopathy Board of Australia (the Board) is responsible for the regulation of osteopaths. The Australian Osteopathic Accreditation Council (AOAC) is the accreditation authority responsible for accrediting education providers and programs of study for the osteopathy profession.

As required by section 46 of the National Law, the Accreditation Council undertook wide ranging stakeholder consultation about the content of the Accreditation Standards before they were recommended to the National Board for approval.

The following accreditation standards for the profession have been approved by the Board and are published in accordance with section 47(6) of the National Law.

These standards are also published on the Australian Osteopathic Accreditation Council website.
