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 a meeting to promote the Graduate Education Programme at the annual convention. 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 Australia (COCA), the EAC,  the Royal College of Chiropractors (RCoC), and the Nordic Institute of Chiropractic and Clinical Biomechanics (NIKKB) all co-own the Chiropractic and Manual Therapies journal this is an open access, online academic journal which is part of the BioMed Central Group they have agreed to cover the cost of article-processing charges for all manuscripts submitted before January 2019.

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 eight SiGs: Clinical Chiropractic; Sports Chiropractic; Orthopaedics; Paediatrics; Education; Diagnostic Imaging; Research; and Neurology.

All chiropractors who are members of ECU Member National Associations and all ECU Individual Members are automatically members of the EAC, as part of their ECU membership

Members of the ECU can apply to become a Fellow, in order to do so you will need to be a member of the ECU, set up an on-line profile you will then be able to apply for membership. 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.
