The College attracts students from all over the world who are looking for a balanced academic and practical programme in an innovative and supportive learning environment. Our curriculum is informed by the same vitalistic understanding that chiropractic has of the body’s ability to self-regulate, self-organise and self-heal.
Before studying at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, students must complete a minimum of one year of approved prerequisite study in basic health science courses at university level. Everything students are taught at the College builds on this foundational knowledge.
The first two years at the College focus on gaining an understanding of the philosophy of chiropractic and chiropractic communication alongside the practical skills required to become an excellent adjustor. The curriculum covers a wide range of well-established chiropractic techniques and the coursework expands on prerequisite scientific understanding of how the body works and what happens if it doesn’t.
The final two years are focussed on professional practice. Students learn the ins and outs of running a chiropractic business, they build their own client base and transform the lives of local communities. It’s during this time that students put the philosophy, art and science elements of chiropractic together.
