17.02.2017 - 18.02.2017 Emirates Osteopathic Conference
Welcome to the 1st Emirates Osteopathic Conference.

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the Emirates Osteopathic Conference. The conference will be held on 17th and 18th February 2017 in Dubai and it is the first osteopathic conference to be held in the Middle East.

"Osteopathy across the Life Span" as the conference theme reflects the broadness of osteopathic practice from the care of infants to the care of the elderly. Invited keynote presentations and workshops and poster presentations will provide a platform, not only for discussing existing knowledge and innovative osteopathic interventions, but also to find new ideas and ways of research in the field of osteopathy. This conference will be of interest to osteopaths, physiotherapists and other healthcare practitioners involved in patient care. We also invite medical professionals and healthcare regulators to attend this conference in order to understand osteopathy and its role in patient care.

Osteopathy has been practised in Dubai for over 30 years, and is rapidly gaining popularity as a healthcare profession. Dubai is fast developing as a hub for medical tourism in the MENA region and osteopathy plays an important role in patient care.
