Graduate Services

“I feel that the OSM grads that I’ve interviewed showed an exceptional level of preparedness, professionalism, and confidence through the interview process and I look forward to hiring more OSM grads in the future!” – Dr. Abby Heppner, D.C.

“Thank you very much for your posting of my massage therapist needs. Yes, I did hire a graduate of your school, and I am so pleased with her. I am in need of another on call person. Would you be able to post my add again. It is so much better for me than putting an ad on Craigslist. I know that you have well trained therapists and that is such a help for me.”
