Short Courses

There are many options when it comes to studying, from full-on degrees to a range of short courses that can help you expand on the skills you are learning within your chiropractic degree. As we continue to sit at home and wait until life goes back to what we once knew, there is no better time than to think about organizing FICS to provide a virtual session to your University/College or student group. FICS have members around the world which are available to speak at your University / College or your local NCSC for the delivery of short courses.

As students get closer to the completion of their degrees, having access to short courses expands your knowledge and prepares you for work after you graduate. Learn not only new skills but also discover new ways of thinking, which will only help you in your future endeavors.

Undertaking short courses is invaluable information to put on your resume when applying for work with athletes or placement work. Not only will it separate you from your peers, but it will also give you the confidence you need to get started.

Contact FICS via email to book a short course at your University/College of within your student group

February 2020 FICS held a workshop for the students at Murdoch University, Perth Australia on the art of assessment of the athlete. Here is what they had to say about the workshop.

Feedback from Student Corey Rodger, Murdoch University 
“First of all big thanks to Dr. Isaksson and Dr. Lourie for their time and providing some valuable insight into the world of sports chiropractic at no expense!”Personally I found the workshop informative and interesting and I find it very motivating when interacting with chiropractors such as Drs. Isaksson and Lourie who are very passionate about the profession and obviously love what they do and are driven to get results with their patients and not simply ‘run a business’.

I specifically enjoyed learning about the pain science/kinematics and biomechanics when addressing an athlete in regard to their sport and in observation. Much of the content opened my thought process up to many more aspects that need to be taken into account when working with patients and not just addressing the aspect of their pain. At Murdoch, it seems we are taught much of how things work but not the why and how to apply theory into practice. I would very much like further workshops to learn more about the observation of athletes and understanding what we are looking for and why it’s significant to treating the athlete and the outcome that can be controlled.

Further workshops to consolidate on and apply the learning from the initial workshop and future ones if so would be fantastic as I believe any opportunity to learn from 2 very experienced chiropractors will be of massive benefit to developing my learning and ability to treat the human body. I know Dr. Lourie plans on running fortnightly adjusting workshops at the Kelmscott clinic which would be interesting if we could use them to apply what we learn in the workshops from weekends, but that’s just food for thought. I also spoke with a couple of students from Murdoch that were unaware of the workshop but were very interested, so I believe if there are future workshops that there is a good chance that more students would show which is good for the profession.
Much thanks, Corey Rogers
