Aidan Spencer BOst MSc MICO PgCert FHEA Clinical Tutors (Tuesdays) and Lecturer


Aidan graduated with distinction from the BSO in 2006. As an undergraduate he gained paediatric experience treating for two years in a primary school for children with severe social emotional and behavioural disorders. This inspired him to study at the OCC and he completed the MSc course in 2008 being awarded the course prize. As an undergraduate he developed a parallel interest in the traditional osteopathic principles and practice and was awarded membership of the Institute of Classical Osteopathy having completed their training. He has more recently deepened his understanding through studying ‘Natural Hygiene’ through the British Institute of Osteopathy.

Aidan worked as a clinic tutor in the above mentioned primary school before being appointed a clinic tutor at the OCC in 2010. He also lectures in the sociology of healthcare at the BSO and has experience of international teaching in Italy and Belgium. He is a faculty member of and table tutor for REBI. He completed a post graduate teaching training.

He works in community practices in Brockley, Nunhead and Romford.

“The OCC has been a constant through my life as an osteopath to date. It is a great privilege to be trusted with the osteopathic healthcare of other peoples’ children and the OCC has provided me with the competence to do so. An additional benefit of the clinic is the opportunity to work one day each work in a highly collaborative and supportive environment alongside colleagues with many decades’ experience.”
