Dr. Michael Solano, B.Sc, Dip.Ed, BAppSc (Osteo)
Dr. Solano received his osteopathic degree in 1992 in Australia. He has extensive additional training through post-graduate courses taken in Australia and the US. He has been very actively involved in post-graduate osteopathic teaching since 2009, including in a number of European countries. Dr. Solano is associated with and teaches for the Australian Research College of Osteopathic Medicine, Ltd. Particular areas of expertise in his teaching are anatomy and embryology. Mr. Solano was an editor of the Australian Osteopathic Journal for five years. From 2008-2018, Dr. Solano was a lecturer of the OCF Fundamentals for the Osteopathic Summer & Winter Schools. During the same time he has been teaching the ROA I and 2 courses in Australia, Europe and the USA. Dr. Solano has experience with organizing and lecturing multiple courses, please find a list of these courses in his CV. Dr. Solano 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. Solano and US faculty from around the country. Another task for Dr. Solano 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.
