BCOM's Alumni Association is committed to building relationships with former students and would like to maintain contact with all graduates after they leave the College.
The Alumni Association was launched in 2011 and works to establish and develop the College's relationship with this far reaching and diverse graduate community. Our members live all over the world, and have a variety of experience in osteopathy, naturopathy and other related healthcare areas.
All BCOM graduates automatically become members of the Alumni Association and membership is free. Members will receive the alumni newsletter, NEXUS, and will be able to access Osteonet and use the College’s library facilities. As members of the alumni community, you are vital to the continued success of the association as well as the College, and your involvement and support will help to make a difference to the experience of our present and future students, so please stay in touch.
NEXUS, BCOM's Alumni Association Newsletter
NEXUS is sent out to our members and is a way of finding out about your fellow alumni – who they are, when they graduated and what they do. NEXUS also keeps you updated on what’s been happening at BCOM.
