Innovation. Rigour. Discovery.
CMCC has one of the most innovative chiropractic research programs in North America. The quality and strength of our research is recognized worldwide. It improves the education of tomorrow’s chiropractors and results in more effective delivery of patient care.
Two Centres of Research Excellence – While CMCC has historically been involved in both clinical and basic science studies, our long term research focus will be on clinical studies. With this in mind, our agenda includes establishing two centres as the foundation for that research – one to study the mechanics of treatment, and the other to study health policy and patient access to treatment. With these two areas as our primary focus, chiropractic research at CMCC will continue to elevate the quality of education and help improve patient care. Click here to read more.
