European Academy

The European Academy of Chiropractic is a sub-committee of the ECU. It is concerned with the promotion and facilitation of graduate educational programme (GEP) and continuing professional development (CPD) for chiropractors.

The EAC organises an annual seminar in Frankfurt to promote the Graduate Education Programme. This is a dedicated programme to help national chiropractic associations to develop a formal system of support for newly-qualified chiropractors. The conceptual framework for the GEP programme was approved by the ECU General Council in 2011

The EAC also accredits academic CPD events for the ECU by awarding points for attendance. One point equates to one hour of approved postgraduate learning.

With the Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA) and the Royal College of Chiropractors, the EAC co-owns Chiropractic and Manual Therapies, an open-access, online academic journal which is part of the BioMed Central group.

The EAC has developed a number of Special Interest Groups (SiGs) for those chiropractors wishing to further their knowledge in a particular area of study. There are currently seven SiGs: Clinical Chiropractic; Sports Chiropractic; Orthopaedics; Paediatrics; Education; Diagnostic Imaging; Research; and Neurology.

From 1 January, 2015, all chiropractors who are members of ECU Member National Associations and all ECU Individual Members will be members of the EAC. This means that there will no longer be a fee for membership.

Members of the ECU can apply to to become a Fellow by applying to the Registrar. Evidence of advanced professional learning to Masters level or equivalent will be required.

The EAC is responsible for the promotion and development of research and researchers in Europe.
