President’s Welcome

Choosing a career is exciting. Choosing a career in Chiropractic is a step towards a satisfying and life-changing future.

As a chiropractor, you will have an opportunity to positively affect the health and wellbeing of people of all ages, their families, and the community at large.

Research is increasingly confirming the links between the brain and nervous system and their role in health and disease. As people are looking for a more pro-active way of managing their health, chiropractic is becoming a rapidly growing healthcare and lifestyle choice.

At ACC we are proud to be the first and only provider in South Australia of a Bachelor of Chiropractic degree accredited by the Tertiary Education and Quality Standards Agency of Australia (TEQSA).

Our links with international organisations such the Rubicon Group and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic provide exciting educational exchange and research opportunities for our students and ensure that ACC is at the forefront of chiropractic education and practice.

We offer a boutique educational experience, rich in both scientific theory and practical application, with access to some of the best educators and practitioners in the profession.

Our curriculum is also unique in offering entrepreneurial business education so that you will be ready to launch your own business and establish yourself as qualified chiropractor.

I encourage you to join this exciting profession and to take your first step to your future with the Australian Chiropractic College.
