New Colleges Opening

Malaysia

flag_malaysiaMalaysia will become the latest country to introduce chiropractic education with the first intake of students next March at the International Medical University in Kuala Lumpur. Head of Chiropractic is Dr. Michael Haneline, formerly a faculty member at Palmer West in San Jose, California, and this exciting new development at a major university has the full endorsement and support of the Chiropractic Association of Malaysia.

The IMU began in 1992 as the International Medical College (IMC), Malaysia’s first private medical college. IMC became the International Medical University (IMU) in 1999, but the university has remained true to key elements of the IMC vision, which are to widen access to professional healthcare education, and to use innovative, integrated and student-centered means in providing that education. Other honors degree courses at IMU include Dentistry, Nutrition & Dietetics, Medical Biotechnology, Psychology, Biomedical Science and Pharmaceutical Chemistry.

Mexico and Spain

flag_mexicoflag_spainSecond schools of chiropractic are now opening their doors to students in Mexico and Spain. In Mexico the first school has been the Universidad Estatal del Valle de Ecatepec (UNEVE), a state university in Ecatepec in the State of Mexico immediately north of Mexico City.

This was developed in the 1990s in partnership with Northwestern Health Sciences University of Bloomington, Minnesota and in recent years has also partnered with Parker College of Chiropractic of Dallas, Texas which provides a faculty enrichment program at its campus in Dallas.

UNEVE has been such a success that the State of Mexico has now funded a second school 2 hours to he north in Toluca, the state capital. The Universidad Estatal del Valle de Toluca (UEVT) commences its first class with 60 students this month. For the meantime UNEVE Rector, Dr. Jose Angel Fernandez, serves in that capacity for UEVT also.

Spain opened its first chiropractic school at the Royal University Center Maria Cristina in Escorial near Madrid 2 years ago with support from the Spanish Chiropractors Association (AEQ), the European Chiropractors Union and the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, UK. Head of Chiropractic Studies is Dr. Ricardo Fujikawa, DC, MD, a Palmer Graduate from Brazil who was formerly Clinic Director at the School of Chiropractic at FEEVALE University in Brazil.

In October the Barcelona College of Chiropractic (BCC) opens in Barcelona. The BCC is a private college of chiropractic with strong public university links. Development of the school has been led by Dr. Adrian Wenban, BCC Director, supported by the AEQ.

The BCC plans to apply for candidate status with the European Council of Chiropractic Education (ECCE) before the end of the year and for more information visit www.bcchiropractic.es.
