The Australian Chiropractic College (ACC) has been established with the support of a passionate group of practitioners who believe there is a better way to deliver optimal health for people through chiropractic and educate better ‘practice ready’ graduates.
Of the 400 plus students who currently graduate from their chiropractic degree each year in Australia, many don’t stay in practice for any significant length of time.
The ACC program has been designed to provide a holistic, ‘job ready’ focus on chiropractic education. Students will graduate well prepared – and appropriately skilled – for long term careers dedicated to chiropractic.
ACC is committed to ensuring that future generations – our children, grandchildren and beyond- have access to excellent, dedicated, chiropractic care.
ACC has been established by practising chiropractors who are passionate about the profession and who want to ensure that chiropractic philosophy and practice are integrated in studies from day one.
As a TEQSA registered higher education institution, the College draws on the expertise of a variety of skill sets and experience. Academics, practitioners, health and higher education professionals and business experts have come together to ensure an outstanding curriculum and outstanding education experience for our students.

“The ACC program is unique in Australia...It’s designed to blend and integrate basic sciences (in particular the neurosciences), with the traditional concepts of chiropractic philosophy using a vitalistic mode of delivery. The human body is an integrated system and we mirror this in our curriculum”.
Professor Sharyn Eaton. OAM, Ph.D, D.C, Academic Dean ACC
“I have learned more in the first couple of weeks at the ACC than I could have imagined. The ACC is the challenge that I was looking for in my studies. The support of the teachers and small class size has made for a really great culture at the College. So glad I made the move to ACC!”
Beth Scutt, ACC student, 2020
