Professor Pourgolís outstanding education and accomplishments began in 1989 when he attended Eastern High School of Commerce in Toronto, Canada and became Ontario and Toronto scholar of the same year. Later on, in his continuous pre-doctoral education at Ryerson University in Applied Chemistry and Biology, he managed to obtain the highest academic average of 97Č (A+) between 11,000 university students, for which he was rewarded with the Merit Award, from Honorable David Peterson, the premier of Ontario. Subsequently, Dr. Pourgol was accepted to Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) where he finished the Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) Degree program in 1995 (Dr Pourgol resigned as a chiropractor on March 06, 2014).

Dr Pourgol's osteopathic education includes a diploma in osteopathic manual practice (DOMP), a bachelor of science in osteopathy - BSc (O), a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), and a Doctor of Philosophy in Osteopathic Clinical Rehabilitation - PhD (OCR). Currently Dr Pourgol is working towards completing a DN (Doctor of Naprapathy) program.

Dr Pourgol has founded June 22nd as the World Osteopathy Day. Now for the first time in over 140 years osteopathy has a day of its own. In November 2014 Canada Post published a postal stamp celebrating the World Osteopathy Day.
