Kevin Tee was drawn to Osteopathy because of his belief that people have the right to engage in pain-free movement throughout their life.
Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy)
I chose to study at RMIT because I felt that the teaching staff and program gave me the opportunity to learn and explore osteopathy to its fullest extent.
I chose to study Osteopathy because I believe that people have the right to engage in movement, and to enjoy movement in a pain free manner throughout their life. This includes everything from performing their routine activities to those activities that would make them think twice about.

The highlight of my studies to date is seeing what osteopathy can do for people, and the wide variety of disorders it can treat. I have gained the skills to diagnose various disorders and abnormalities in people, as well as a deeper understanding of the human anatomy.
My favourite course has been Biomechanics and Physiology because as A.T Still, the founder of Osteopathy, said “a knowledge of anatomy is only a dead weight if we do not know how to apply that knowledge with successful skills”. It has given me a better understanding of how the human body works - not just as individual parts but as a whole working unit. As a result I have a better understanding of the mechanics behind the techniques I learn and how and when to use them to help people.
