Speakers Bureau

OIA International Osteopathic Speakers Bureau

The OIA, in its decade of existence, has become the leading organisation for the advancement of the global osteopathic profession. As part of our commitment to providing our members and the entire profession with the best possible resources, we have developed the International Osteopathic Speakers Bureau. We aim to provide you with access to experts in all areas of the osteopathic profession, from education and regulation, to practice and continuing education, as well as association development and expanding membership. Our experts come from across the globe, spanning the profession as practicing and non-practicing osteopathic physicians and osteopaths, executives, heads of schools, regulators and educators.

The Bureau is composed of present and past OIA Board members who have a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the global osteopathic profession and can be available to speak at conferences, to your associations or schools and elsewhere. Their years of expertise and contributions to the leadership of this Alliance and the osteopathic profession as a whole has been of great benefit, and is now available to you!
