France

Since 2002 osteopathy has been a recognised profession, and from 2007 the title 'osteopathe' became protected in legislation. Further regulations were published in September and December 2014 reforming the legal framework for training of osteopaths in France.

 

The decree published in September 2014 set out 24 criteria required for all training institutions. The decree in December 2014 laid down that from September 2015 osteopathic training in France should be at least 4,860 hours spread over five years. Clinical training would be supervised and the regulation of the institutions would be overseen by the health and social affairs authority 'IGAS'.

 

To obtain the title 'osteopath' physiotherapists and midwives will have to complete +/- 900 hours of training, nurses and physiotherapists +/- 2,300 hours and medical doctors a little less than 800 hours.
