Program accreditation

Program accreditation is a multi-level process which aims to evaluate and continuously improve educational effectiveness based on firstly self-evaluation by the relevant program followed by verification and validation by the Council.

The purpose of the accreditation process is to determine that chiropractic programs:

  • have a clearly defined mission and goals consistent with the Foreword of the Standards, with educationally-appropriate objectives;
  • maintain conditions under which the achievement of these objectives can reasonably be expected;
  • are in fact achieving these objectives substantially; and
  • can be expected to continue to achieve these objectives in the future.
