A new articulation agreement between the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) will enable qualified students to complete a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in seven years, instead of eight.
This agreement offers UNB students an opportunity to complete the requirements of their undergraduate degree in kinesiology at UNB through courses offered within their Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at CMCC.
“We are pleased to work with UNB to expand opportunities for students, facilitating a clear and robust career pathway for students who identify their interests early in their undergraduate program,” says Dr. David Wickes, President, CMCC.
“UNB is committed to creating opportunities for our students to build their careers and strengthen their professional avenues,” says Dr. Wayne Albert, Dean of Kinesiology. “This new pathway benefits students who wish to pursue a career in chiropractic, reducing the length of time for study and providing them with the support early on, through the collaboration between our institutions.”
I would have loved a program like this when I was going through my undergraduate program at UNB in preparation for CMCC. With this agreement in place, students can save a year of tuition and get a head start on building a practice.

I am excited to see my two alma maters come together in this pathway program. After graduating as a chiropractor, I returned to UNB to complete a Master’s in Exercise Sciences and now work as a sports specialist chiropractor as well as a teacher in the Faculty of Kinesiology at UNB. I have a solid understanding of both programs and how they can work together.
UNB has an incredible kinesiology program with many students who know they want to become health care professionals. This pathway program will allow them to help see patients a year earlier and proudly hang both diplomas on their wall. Congratulations to both CMCC and UNB on their collaboration.
Dr. Matthew Williams BScKin, CSCS, DC, MScESS, FRCCSS(C)
