Course Description

Chiropractors are primary contact practitioners focusing on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system.

Chiropractic emphasises the relationship between the musculoskeletal system and general health. It promotes self-help measures and health promotion in the management of musculoskeletal disorders.

You will examine how such disorders affect biomechanics, the nervous system and health in general. The focus is on manual treatments such as spinal adjustments and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.

Anatomy, physiology and pathology courses underpin the clinical science studies of physical examination, differential diagnosis for the chiropractor and clinical practicum.

You will begin work-integrated learning immediately, culminating in your fourth year when you will perform patient-care duties with supervision from a registered practitioner.

At the RMIT Health Sciences Clinic at University Hill, Bundoora, fourth and fifth year students, under the supervision of registered chiropractors, treat patients using a wide variety of management approaches.

Needed to mesh more with other uni courses - chiro tends to be a bit separate and would be good to spend more time on the sciences. More qualified teachers would be better too.

My advice to future students is: Study ahead in the notes as much as possible

My advice to future students is: Make sure you find really good mentors within the pro...

Negatives - little ""real world"" experience because of the content and legislation around the profession, constantly felt like our course versus all other health courses.

There are plenty of ""Jobs"" however they only pay per patient...
