Unique Master Programme in Chiropractic
The Master programme in chiropractic is the clinical part of the chiropractic programmme at Southern University of Denmark. We attach great importance to diagnostic, skill training, staying at a clinic as well as a scientific thesis. The teaching is organised so the students are being taught by experts in all subjects. The subject ‘Neurology’ is for example being taught by a professor in neurology, while the teaching in the more clinical oriented subjects are handled by experienced chiropractors and/or by medical specialists, of whom many are active researchers.
Lively study environment
The University in Odense has a lively study environment and some enjoyable physical surroundings boasting a campus café, student bookstore, quiet study rooms, several university cafeterias, the university library and much more. The Association of Nordic Chiropractic Students organises regular academic and social events, and you can participate in the instructive and well attended palpation nights (palpation = touch/feel with hands and fingers). In addition, the campus in Odense offers a variety of student activities of a both social and academic nature, including, e.g., a film-club, a student congregation, party-political forums, the youth department of the Nordic Association, the 'Friday Bar', and a European Student Network, just to mention a few.
The University of Southern Denmark is the only educational institution in the Nordic countries with a graduate programme in clinical biomechanics (chiropractic). About half of the students come from Denmark, while the other half come from the other Nordic countries. The study programme in clinical biomechanics in Odense is widely recognised and well-esteemed internationally.
