About this course:
This is the fourth course in our Pediatric Osteopathy Masters Certification Program.
You must complete Part 1. Cranial Dysfunctions in Pediatric Osteopathy before enrolling in this course.
You can also take this course alone if you can demonstrate a prior solid training in Biomechanical Cranial Osteopathy.
For Practitioners who have an interest in Orthopedics, learning how conditions like shoulder distocia can present at birth, or how lower limb and gait abnormalities can manifest as an Infant learns to stand and walk, is a very important part of your Pediatric Osteopathy training.
You will learn the mechanics of these conditions as well as how to treat them successfully.
The course includes many individual demonstration videos, a full length pre-recorded Webinar, all of the clinical forms you willl need as Downloads, as well as a portion of the Workbook related to Pediatric Osteopathic Assessment.
This course is worth 30 hours of CEU/CPDs and contains modules, audio lessons, demonstration videos and associated webinars on the following subjects:
1. Upper Limb Orthopedic Dysfunctions including Shoulder Distocia

4. A full length pre-recorded webinar in Lower Limb Dysfunctions.
5. Downloads of portions of the Workbook and Assessment Protocol sheets.
Since this course is self-paced, you will be able to access the modules, demonstration videos, and webinars at any time and learn at our own pace. Once you have completed the course, you can still log in and review the course material for one full year.

In addition to the audio lessons and video demonstrations, you will also practice some hands-on assignments and use the protocol sheets provided to write your notes and submit them to earn your CEUs/CPDs.
