Master of Clinical Chiropractic

CQUniversity Australia

Successful completion of the Master of Clinical Chiropractic will equip you with the knowledge and clinical skills to meet the competencies required by the Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia and therefore apply for registration as a chiropractor in Australia. This course is designed as an extended (6 term) Masters to maximise clinical learning, which is largely undertaken in approved chiropractic clinics in the community and complemented by the availability of theoretical content by distance learning. Training in the process of reaching a logical diagnosis, planning a patient's treatment and assessing the effectiveness of that therapeutic intervention is an essential skill that will run across all 6 terms. As a graduate, you will be a practice ready, competent chiropractor with diagnostic skills that will be able to be applied in a professional, ethical and lawful manner. You will be required to demonstrate leadership within the health care sector, be an effective problem solver, and be able to communicate to consumers of chiropractic and related disciplines for the ultimate benefit of the health of the community.
