What is the Swiss Osteopathy Science Foundation?

The Swiss Osteopathic Science Foundation was founded in 2012 and has set itself the goal of promoting the accreditation and recognition of training courses in the field of osteopathy at master's level; this was achieved at the School of Health Sciences in Fribourg (HEdS-Fr) by opening a Bachelor's in 2014 and a Master's degree programme in 2017. It also aims to promote the development of osteopathic research and its dissemination (exchange, publication) at national and international level.
