The  Registered Massage Therapy program includes significant academic human science content, therefore OV recommends that all applicants to OV without a recent background in science complete the Human Science College Preparation Course.

  • An overview of Human Anatomy and Physiology
  • Medical Terminology

The preparation course content has been developed utilizing feedback from previous students, and is designed to be useful for all incoming students.  This course is recommended for all students, and  may be required for students without  human biology or anatomy and physiology.
