Course content

If you’ve qualified as a chiropractor within the last three years, and you're looking to take your career to the next level or gain that professional edge, you should consider yourself to an enhanced professional skillset with this PgCert. Designed to run in conjunction with a place on a PRT or GEP programme, or to accumulate points so you can apply for a Masters, this 12-month course is flexible, focused and industry-recognised. Maybe you’re an international student returning to a country with no formal GEP programme - whatever your motivation, this course is the perfect next step in your chiropractic career.

The idea of the PgCert is that it will help you become truly proficient in a professional role, so you embody the attitude and own the necessary skillset to progress professionally through your career, ultimately focusing on managing, evaluating, and improving professional practices.

We cultivated the PgCert here at the AECC University College - one of the largest, established and most renowned chiropractic training facilities in the world - using the decades of insight, experience and expertise, guided by our bank of world-class, actively practising academic staff.

We offer the PgCert Professional Development Chiropractic in a one-year, part-time course structure, with no attendance required. This means you’re able to fit studying in around your daily routine and complete it as and when it suits you - perfect if you’re already juggling work, patients, family and other commitments.

If you find yourself in need of advice or support at any time our tutors will always be on hand to give you any help you need. What’s more you’ll have full access to all the facilities on our campus, including a purpose-built training clinic, gym, labs, and an extensive library, all set within walking distance of Bournemouth’s beautiful beaches, green spaces, and a lively cosmopolitan centre.
