The programme of Study
The BCC curriculum – With the assistance of curriculum development experts, and with feedback from major stakeholders, the BCC has developed its unique curriculum that strives to marry the discipline of chiiropractic with advanced teaching, learning and assesment strategies.
Science, Art and Phylosophy
Traditionally, chiropractic was based on three fundamental pillars: Philosophy, Science and Art. Finding the balance between these three pillars in developing the curriculum is a priority for our academic team. In keeping with chiropractic principles, the curriculum combines the study of basic and clinical sciences with a deep reflection on the body’s ability to optimise health.
BCC is an international college with two oficial languages – Spanish and English. During the first year, the College provides simultaneously translated lectures and supportive language courses, to enable students to follow classes while improving their language.
During the last two years, most theory clases are taught in English while practical experience takes place in Spanish.100
From the beginning our curriculum enables students to acquire understandand practice of the scientific investigation, evidence-informed practice and critical/ analytical thinking. As a result, students are well prepared for carrying out a major research Project in the final years of the programme of the study.
Personal Development Planning and Reflective Practice.
These modules aim to enhance the students’ ability to understand what and how they are learning and to help them review, plan and take responsability for their own learning, while discovering leadership, team building and scientific reasoning skills.100
Early contact with patients is essential and thus, the BCC offers its students the oppportunity to observe and interact with experienced chiropractors caring for patients in the BCC Chiropractic Centre. Throughout the 4th and 5th years students, provide evidence-
based chiropractic care to patients whilst under the close supervision of well trained professionals.
