UK to offer new university-based chiropractic program at University of Central Lancashire

June 24, 2019

PRESS RELEASE

 

UCLan webThe United Kingdom will soon have another new university-based chiropractic program, adding to four existing programs and the announcement of a fifth earlier this year. The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is located in the North West of England and last week announced that it was recruiting a senior lecturer to serve as a course leader within UCLan’s School of Health Sciences.

The launch of the new chiropractic program, which will be offered as an integrated Masters program, is the third to have been launched since the establishment of the Society for Promoting Chiropractic Education (SPCE), following the announcement of new programs at London South Bank University and Teeside University.

Chief Executive of SPCE, Satjit Singh, said: “We are delighted that UCLan are developing a new chiropractic programme. It will be of immense benefit to students, especially in the North-West, as well as help improve access to chiropractic care in the area. Students will enjoy a wonderful all-round experience, benefitting from UCLan’s excellent campus and teaching facilities. We look forward to supporting UCLan in developing the programme, which will meet the aspirations of the patients, profession and students.”

UCLan imageUCLan is a large provider of multi-professional healthcare education, traiing and development, offering a range of taught undergraduate and postgraduate modular based courses, research degrees and credit recognition. The School develops its portfolio collaboratively with partners in response to national policy and local requirements and needs, providing professional courses, short courses and continuing professional development. The focus is on students developing evidence-based knowledge, skills and person-centred values in preparation for employment. 

In addition to its newly-announced chiropractic provision, the School of Health Sciences at UCLan offers courses in: Physiotherapy, Sports Therapy, Paramedic Practice, Occupational Therapy, Operating Department Practice, Health Informatics, and Acute and Emergency Care.

Commenting on the announcement, WFC Interim President Dr Vivian Kil said: “The announcement of yet another chiropractic program at a mainstream UK university shows an exciting development in the provision of comprehensive, evidence-based chiropractic education. This will expand workforce capacity, increase access to and awareness of chiropractors and help in tackling the burden of spinal and joint pain and disability in the UK and Europe.”

The university is currently recruiting a Senior Lecturer to lead the chiropractic program. Applications are welcomed and further information can be found at http://bit.ly/UCLan_job.
