Welcome to the Australasian Osteopathic Accreditation Council (AOAC)

The Australasian Osteopathic Accreditation Council (AOAC) is the independent organisation to assess and accredit osteopathic education programs leading to eligibility for registration as an osteopath in Australia, and to assess the suitability of overseas qualified osteopaths to practice in Australia. The AOAC was known as ANZOC until July 2014 when a transition to the new name was made to better reflect our current area of operations. New Zealand accreditation is managed by the Osteopathic Council of New Zealand.
