The Student Commission is responsible for the creation of opportunities for students studying chiropractic, who are interested in sports chiropractic. Below is the information on how to stay connected; education; and sports opportunities. We will assist you in setting up a student club within your University/College and you will be expanding your networks in no time.
The purpose of networking is to form relationships with those who’ll help get you to where you want to go, and the earlier you start building up your network, the better. That’s why it’s important to start networking in college — before you’re graduated. FICS partnerships with college and university who run a chiropractic program allow students to be exposed to networks outside their core group.
Networking and connecting with other Sports Chiropractors outside of your University or home town, allows you to prepare for working in practice and with sporting teams. It opens doors to employment opportunities with your local Sports Chiropractors community and being a part of a community of like-minded students and practitioners are some of the many benefits of joining FICS as a student council.
ICSC Study Group
Undergraduate chiropractic students in or entering their final year of study can enrol in the International Certificate in Sports Chiropractic (ICSC). The ICSC is your step to working with athletes on the International Stage.

The student commission is here to assist groups of students with study groups. To apply for the ICSC, you must fulfil the following criteria:
