What type of education qualifications do chiropractors receive?
 

Today's chiropractor is a highly educated professional. Chiropractic training in Australia involves a minimum five years of study at  Sydney's Macquarie University, Melbourne's RMIT University or Perth's Murdoch University. Many Australian chiropractors receive similar education in the US, Canada, Europe and New Zealand.

 

These courses are of similar length and depth as medical courses, but focus on promoting healthier lifestyles via better body function, rather than on drugs or surgery. Accordingly, chiropractic education involves a special emphasis on anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, biomechanics, X-ray, spinal adjusting techniques and related subjects.

 

After entering practice, all chiropractors must complete continuing professional development courses and seminars to upgrade and improve their skills and to stay current on the latest scientific research.
