Director Katri Luukka signing the Memorandum of Understanding.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed to promote collaboration between Metropolia UAS and Skandinaviska Osteopathögskolan (SKOHS) in Göteborg, Sweden. As the validation partner, Metropolia’s Department of Human Movement and Functioning is to review the osteopathy programme's curriculum and implementation of the education run by SKOHS.

In the future, to promote the consolidation of the competence base of the students and faculty members, diverse forms of traditional academic collaboration will be implemented. The combined resources will facilitate planning and implementation of joint study modules, co-creation of pedagogical solutions, and development of mutual research projects.

This new Nordic competence alliance is likely to attract more students and to increase osteopathy’s recognizability as a part of the healthcare service system. Ultimately, it is the clients of osteopathy, however, who will benefit the most from the shared expertize of SKOHS and Metropolia, as such collaboration will contribute to the quality of osteopathy services in the Nordic countries.
