Strategic Plan

The Councils on Chiropractic Education International (CCEI) was established in 2001 by the world’s regional chiropractic accrediting agencies (CCEs). These member agencies combined their efforts to collaborate and assure excellence and consistent quality improvement in chiropractic education through accreditation. CCEI is recognised by the World Health Organization as the authority on chiropractic educational programmes.​

Accreditation is an important quality assurance and quality improvement mechanism for chiropractic professional education. Adherence to internationally accepted standards also helps facilitate recognition and portability of students and graduates across member agency regions.

 

The quality of accreditation standards and assessment of programmes against those standards provides assurance that the education provider produces a competent graduate with the knowledge, skills and professional attributes to enter practice. In recognising the need for internationally accepted standards, the CCEI acknowledges that education systems are part of the richly diverse and innovative cultures of a geographic jurisdiction. The accreditation process thus respects the autonomy of the educational programme, national legislation and regulations, and acknowledges that there is no single best way to produce a competent chiropractor. Specific policies, procedures and even educational requirements, may vary to a certain extent as they reflect local academic traditions and/or legislation in a jurisdiction.

As chiropractic continues to expand outside areas covered by the current member agencies, the CCEI is available to assist with the development of additional member agencies or inquiries related to educational standards and accreditation.
