Postgraduate Studies in Chiropractic

Macquarie is one of three Universities which currently teach Chiropractic in Australia. We are the only such university in Sydney and each year we have around 100 students graduate with the Master of Chiropractic.

The Master of Chiropractic

The Master of Chiropractic is a rigorous two year program that further develops the concepts and techniques introduced in the Bachelor of Chiropractic Science. In conjunction with coursework, students are required to participate in a year-long internship working within one of Macquarie University's Chiropractic Clinics. The Department of Chiropractic currently operates three Chiropractic Outpatient Clinics and Research Centres in Sydney.

This program is fully accredited by Australian professional accrediting agencies and is recognised internationally. The Chiropractic course is designed to prepare graduates for assuming the full diagnostic responsibilities of a primary contact health practitioner.
