In order to survive and develop normally we must have efficient digestive and eliminatory systems, and reproduction is essential for the continuity of life itself.

In this interesting weekend aided by our guest speaker we look at the development and function of the gut, kidneys, and urinary systems as they progress towards maturity, and the delicate interplay involved in gaining continence.

We also cover the development of the reproductive system and areas of concern which might arise for our young patients.

The appropriate osteopathic management and treatment for paediatric patients is explored thoroughly guided by experienced tutors in 1:4 tutor groups.

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.
