“Disclaimer: VU’s department of Career Development & Employment advertises job opportunities as a service to you the student.

Osteopathy practitioners may be required to have their own ABN, insurances, association fees, and may be required to pay service fees to the clinic. Please consider if this type of business arrangement is suitable for you and make your own enquiries before proceeding to enter into any business contracts.”
