  • Solicit the Directorate of Health and Social Action for the legality of initial training in osteopathy after the Baccalaureate (1990).
  • Request the registration of his / her higher education activity with the Ministry of National Education (1992).
  • To format its teaching according to the standards defined by the European Union in Bologna (2001).

In 2014, ESO was confirmed to register its diploma in Level I ( Ministerial Order of 20 January 2014).
