Course Information

Chiropractors have the privilege of being able to positively impact people’s lives through the provision of natural and non-invasive healthcare methods. They have a deep understanding of the body’s structures and how each interacts to affect our health. Using spinal adjustments, manipulation and other physical means to improve neuromusculoskeletal function, chiropractors can help us live healthy and active lives.

This degree – the longest-running in Australia – will prepare you for a rewarding career in one of the largest primary health professions. When you combine it with the Master of Chiropractic, you’ll be equipped to work in private practice, chiropractic sports medicine, allied health areas, health insurance assessment, medico-legal advising, work health and safety, rehabilitation and research.
