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

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.
