Osteopathic Practitioners can identify themselves as being ‘WHOMBS FRIENDLY’ if they hold a basic membership.
To be a WHOMBS CERTIFIED practitioner the osteopath must have satisfied a certain level of training in the care of women and children.
This is a service under development. Please check back later for more details!
Any WHOMBS courses, membership, certification or recognition does not grant any practitioner a formal / registrable qualification in osteopathy, nor does it constitute a claim to be a registered practitioner.
WHOMBS courses and services are for post graduate osteopathic practitioners.
Osteopathic practitioners in many countries are now regulated, and have formal registration bodies with whom they must have membership in order to practice.
Being WHOMBS friendly or WHOMBS certified does not entitle the practitioner to claim they are a registered osteopath in any country where statutory registration is established.
Practitioners who claim to be an osteopath practising / seeing patients / clients in any given country must be able to support that claim through formal registration within that country’s regulatory framework.
