Becoming practice ready

Taking learning into practice

During their time at the Centre, interns develop their technique, communication and business skills and are given the space to grow into a world-class chiropractor.

From their first year at the College, students have the opportunity to be involved in the Centre by observing interns and mentors, helping out with community events and developing their communication skills.

Supported by experienced mentors

The College’s chiropractic interns benefit from expert faculty members and chiropractors who bring real-life experience. Being exposed to an array of mentors allows individual students to connect with a wide range of people and experiences.

Practice member interactions

Interns work with people from all stages of life, from newborn babies to the elderly and from those needing acute care to those looking to enhance their wellbeing.

Every interaction in the Chiropractic Centre is viewed as a learning experience. To graduate, interns must complete a minimum of 500 visits during their time at the Centre, but usually go well above this number.

Taking chiropractic into the community

Students also have the opportunity to be involved in regular community events in the Auckland region. These events give interns the opportunity to talk to the public about the benefits of chiropractic care and offer complimentary spine checks.
