    Your future begins today...

    Welcome to the Barcelona College of Chiropractic (BCC), which will open in October 2009. Our 5 year

    full-time programme will provide you with all the skills and knowledge required in order to become an

    outstanding chiropractor with a unique understanding of both health sciences and the bodys innate

    ability to heal.

    Today, many people are disenchanted with certain aspects of mainstream health care and are searching

    for less invasive methods. Chiropractic leads the global move toward a more natural, holistic and integrated

    approach to health. Additionally, the BCC strives to meet the growing public demand for caring,

    compassionate health care providers who offer safe, affordable, drug-free health care. You can be part

    of this 21st Century revolution.

    Chiropractic consists of three pillars science, art, and philosophy. At the BCC our focus is on teaching

    a curriculum balanced around these three key pillars. An expert academic team, in collaboration with

    academic consultants and experienced chiropractors are developing this curriculum.

    Enthusiasm for the BCC project in the broader health care community is reflected by the fact that the

    fund raising, needed to support the project, has advanced rapidly. The BCC is a private institution, backed

    by a non-profit government registered Foundation (Fundacin Privada Quiroprctica), which has a signed

    collaborative agreement with one of Spains leading public universities the Universitat Pompeu Fabra

    (www.upf.edu).

    Thank you for enquiring about studying chiropractic at the BCC. Given chiropractics position as a world

    leader in the provision of natural and safe health care, there has never been a better time to become a

    chiropractor.

    BCC Coordinator

    Since its inception in 1895, chiropractic has grown to become the

    largest natural health care profession in the world. Chiropractors

    strive to restore health and quality of life by optimising the bodys

    innate self-healing abilities.

    Chiropractors train for a minimum of five years, working

    with their hands to locate and correct imbalances in the spine

    known as vertebral subluxations. Vertebral subluxations

    directly impact the nervous system and adversely affect the

    function and health of the body. By correcting, or adjusting,

    vertebral subluxations chiropractors strive to help people of all

    ages to be at their best.
