Barcelona College of Chiropractic gets ECCE Candidate Status

November 18 2010

Thursday, 18 November 2010 Barcelona College of Chiropractic granted ECCE candidate status My warmest congratulations to the Barcelona College of Chiropractic with their candidate status which was granted them at the last ECCE Commission on Accreditations meeting in Brussels. This is an important achievement for the school and equally important for the chiropractic profession because the principal goal of the profession is to assure the quality of chiropractic undergraduate education and training against a set of educational standards. The Barcelona College of Chiropractic is a public university affiliated college of chiropractic and registered with the Catalan Government's Justice Department via a non-profit foundation. The BCC started its 2nd year of classes this fall and now has a total of 53 students enrolled in the college. The programme of study involves 5 years of full-time study. Graduates will receive a private title awarded by the BCC, called a Titulo Superior en Quiropractica, and a Master en Quiropractica (titulo propio) from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Dr.Adrian Wenban Director, Barcelona School of Chiropractic The teaching and administrative staff employed by the BCC are expanding rapidly so that the college now employs staff who, between them, have 3 PhD's and 8 Master qualifications. The majority of classes presently take place on the campuses of two public universities with whom the BCC now has five signed collaborative agreements. The BCC has two official languages and students are supported linguistically via simultaneous translation and language classes where necessary. On the 9th of October 2010, the BCC submitted it's application for candidate status to the European Council on Chiropractic (ECCE). The ECCE granted the school candidate status on Saturday the 13th of November at the Radisson Blu Royal in Brussels. When the BCC graduates its first cohort of students, it must demonstrate that it is in substantial compliance with the ECCE standards in order to get full accreditation. I know I have the whole profession with me when I wish them luck in this pursuit. At the same time I want to express my thanks to director of the programme Dr. Adrian Wenban for an excellent start, and I wish him and his staff all the best in their future work.
