What does being a part of FICS
mean to today’s students

Dr Gillian Johnston

The Councils on Chiropractic Education (CCEI) is an organization of chiropractic accrediting bodies worldwide. CCEI is committed to excellence in chiropractic education through emphasis on quality in The International Framework for Chiropractic Education and Accreditation, and by aiding in the development and recognition of new accrediting bodies in geographic regions where such agencies are not currently recognized. 

CCEI provides accreditation services through its assigned member organizations to chiropractic educational entities situated in areas not currently served by a CCEI member agency.  Accreditation agency actions and status designations for chiropractic educational entities that award equivalent degrees are mutually endorsed on the basis of membership in CCEI.  https://www.cceintl.org/

In order to apply for the ICSC you must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Be a qualified chiropractor from a CCEI recognized accredited college. For the list of acceptable accredited institutions, click through to our website to check accredited educational colleges.
  • Undergraduate students in or entering their final-year can complete the hands-on seminars and the eLS. The professional experience part of this qualification is completed after graduation.

MENTORING OPPORTUNITIES

Going from university straight into the professional working world can come as quite a shock. Students might have thought the learning stopped after sitting their last university exam but in reality, we all know how hard it is to take that first step into the world outside of your university. This is when the real learning starts.

Some of the challenges which sport chiropractic students face is connecting with practicing doctors and working their way through the minefields. Some of the common questions about licensing, laws, and practice in countries they may not be from and how they can get valuable experience working with athletes, all comes from becoming connected with an experienced hand who has been there and knows the ropes.

Students and new graduates are looking for ways to find jobs, mentors, and preceptor opportunities abroad.   To assist our student members who are embarking on the next stage of their journey, FICS has compiled a list of doctors that students can contact to develop these relationships, assist with questions, or point them in the right direction.

If you are interested in a mentor, please do not hesitate to contact one of the FICS Student Commission members.
