Our living body urgently requires oxygenation, nutrition, and clearance of waste products.

This is even more essential during the explosive growth that occurs during early development, and many problems can arise if this essential requirement is not adequately met.

In this exciting weekend we will engage with the growth, development and refinements that take place in the lungs and vascular system, including the lymphatics, as we journey from neonate through childhood.

Guided by your enhanced knowledge and experienced tutors, osteopathic treatment approaches applicable to infants and children will be demonstrated in a 1:4 tutor group environment.

It is expected that you are already treating children in your own practice. A current Enhanced DBS certificate and Safeguarding of Children level 2 or above (or equivalent from the country in which you reside and practice) is required; a copy of which should be supplied to our office.

SCCO Course Providers: All SCCO courses are run by a resident Course Director, who is an Osteopath and a member of the SCCO Faculty. Pathway courses are delivered by SCCO Faculty and may be supported by guest speakers. Short courses are usually delivered by a visiting guest lecturer.  SCCO Faculty members all hold recognised osteopathic qualifications but may not be GOSC registered osteopaths.

Forthcoming opportunities to take P5: Respiratory & Cardiology



What our students say about P5: Respiratory & Cardiology

“The best POD weekend so far. I think this should become the model of all the weekends – a HUGE subject condensed into ‘need to know’ bullet points with quality references to follow up if interested with lots of guided practical.”

“Best weekend so far. Excellent, inspiring and clear teaching and felt that I came away with some concrete techniques that I could use straight away.”

“Best weekend to date. Lectures had a nice progression and cohesion across both days.”
