BCOM - British College of Osteopathic Medicine


BCOM's Student Extranet

Celebrating 80 Years

The 2016/17 Academic year marks BCOM’s 80th Anniversary.

The college was established in 1936 by Stanley Lief, the renowned naturopathic osteopath who founded the Champneys spa.

Over the years the college has become a sector lead in osteopathic teaching and research.

BCOM was the first UK Osteopathic Education Institution (OEI) to successfully validate an osteopathic honours degree and is the founder of the International Conference on Advances in Osteopathic Research. It also became the first institution in the UK to offer an osteopathic honours degree and to achieve a landmark “approval without conditions” QAA led RQ recognition from the General Osteopathic Council for two consecutive reviews.
