Dr. Anthony Norrie, D.O., Grad.Dip. (Osteo. Paed)
Dr. Norrie received his osteopathic degree in 1986 in England and his graduate diploma in pediatric osteopathy in 1996 in Australia. He has extensive additional training through post-graduate courses taken in Australia, New Zealand, and the US. Early in his career he began teaching and was a founding member of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation of ANZ and he has been involved in developing various teaching programs. Mr. Norrie is associated with and teaches for the Australian Research College of Osteopathy, Ltd. He teaches in Australia, New Zealand, and widely in Europe. As of 2003, Dr. Norrie is part of the faculty for the annual undergraduate Osteopathic Summer School in Canberra Australia. Dr. Norrie has also provided lectures at Unitech Osteopathic School - guest lecturer, ONZ Annual Conference Auckland, NZ Lactation Consultants Conference, Wellington, MINDD Conference - Auckland, ReproMed patient education series - Auckland, AUT Midwifery School, Centre for Advanced Medicine - Staff Training, Enhancing Clinical Skills - Auckland, Osteopaths New Zealand (ONZ): Janet Meller Memorial Pediatrics Conference, and at the Waldorf Extra Lesson Conference - Auckland. Dr. Norrie has been in private practice in Auckland since graduation developed around Osteopathy in the Cranial Field and ROA principles with a focus on Osteopathy as a practice of general medicine. Dr. Norrie is a leading scholar in osteopathic manipulative medicine in general and osteopathy in the cranial field in particular. He, along with his colleagues in Australia and New Zealand, has developed a unique and innovative understanding in his application of osteopathy. He will be sharing this osteopathic knowledge and skills with US physicians who will benefit by being able to incorporate these approaches into their own clinical practices for the benefit of their patients. In addition, many of the US physicians attending the course are themselves teachers in post-graduate education and several of them are faculty at various US colleges of osteopathic medicine. And so there will be significant opportunities for exchange between Dr. Norrie and US faculty from around the country. Another task for Dr. Norrie is to begin to develop a select group of physicians here in the US that can become specialized in this approach and continue a high level of teaching in this subject.
