Malaysia is a market of 32 Million people in 2018, with 76 % of the population leaving in urban areas. With a fertility rate of 2.5 children born by woman and an age structure that counts 24% of the population aged between 0 and 14 years old, the Malaysian market offers optimal conditions to ensure work security for our practitioners.

Widely developed in Europe and other western countries (20 million treatments per year in France for a population of 65 Millions), it is now the fastest-growing health regulated profession in Australia ! With a workforce increase of over 6.5% last year alone according to Osteopathy Board of Australia, and student inscriptions increase of 50% every year, Osteopathy is now taking the allied healthcare profession to the next level, leading complementary medicine evolution in Australia.
The Academy ethics : A Strict Numerus Clausus
We have the social responsibility to develop a healthy professional environment for the coming generations of osteopaths in Malaysia. In order to protect the development of osteopathy in Malaysia and ensure our fresh graduate to have work all along their career, we carefully studied the potential need of osteopaths in the country over the next thirty years, considering the evolution of urban population, purchasing power, data on osteopathy development in other countries, and came to the decision to impose a NUMERUS CLAUSUS, in other terms a strict limited number of students every year : 30 students the first year, 30 students the second year, 50 students from the third year onwards.

The calculations are pretty straightforward :
- In 20 years, 10% of the population will consult an osteopath on a regular basis (very conservative estimate, based on data from all countries with a healthy development rate)
- One osteopath practice must have between 600 and 1500 patients in its database to function and be full in its early beginnings, and this number can go up to 3000 patients per osteopath a few years later.
- Therefore, a city of 300,000 residents needs around 10 osteopaths
- So at the country level, in 20 years, Malaysia will need 1000 osteopaths
These projections are even more conservative, considering that we use population statistics from 2018. First generations of practitioners will naturally be renewed by the new ones over a 30 years cycle, without overcrowding the market. This will also guaranty the constant and highest quality of treatment for the PATIENTS, as the quality of education won’t be diluted by overcrowded classes of students, and practitioners will be able to maintain and continuously improve their skills by seeing many patients throughout their entire career.
The Patient First. This, and this only, can lead Malaysia to become a leader in osteopathic education and a model for the world and existing schools.
