I Love You All!

I have so much love for all of you. I wish you all the best. I wish you get whatever your heart desires.

I am the First Canadian to Own a University in USA!

I cannot believe how blessed I am to own the first and only manual osteopathy university in the states. And to become the only Canadian in history to own a university in the United States of America!

This is all thanks to you, my students, faculty and staff who supported me every step of the way. Without your help and love I could not have overcome all the obstacles in setting up the National University of Medical Sciences (USA) in Naples, Florida!

Whispers of the Water

Moments when I stand before water, it seems to whisper in my ears: Shahin, choose the simple things in life and seek pleasure in nature’s simple beauty. The water tells me that life and living is filled with joy!

A letter from one of our students in Mexico

Dear Dr. Pourgol
I first want to thank you for the great lectures the school has. I've passed through other Osteopathy schools and none of them have taught me how to become a real osteopath as this school does.
I live in México City, single mom of two boys, and osteopathy has become very important to me, a way of life.
I'm very proud to be part of the best osteopaths in the world.

Backyard Osteopathy!

It is nice to see my students practicing osteopathy outside in such beautiful weather.
Good job Christina! I am proud of you! :) 


Understanding & Knowing

There is a big difference between understanding and knowing. You can know a lot about a subject and not really understand it. I make sure my students understand the subjects I teach.
A teacher should give something to students to take home to think about beside homework. I make sure my students have plenty to think about when they leave school! :)

NUMSS (USA) Campus in India

National University of Medical Sciences (USA) is in the process of setting up a campus in Mumbai to offer on campus DPT (doctor of physical therapy) and PhD in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation programs to Indian physiotherapists.

The first class is scheduled to start in September 03, 2017. More information will be released soon.

After a hard day of working on this complex project, I got the chance to finally relax and have some sardines for lunch!
