The Master's degree programme in Clinical Biomechanics is the clinical part of the Chiropractor degree programme at the University of Southern Denmark. Here diagnostics, skills training, Clinic Internship and a scientific master's thesis carry much weight. The teaching is organised in such a way that you get taught by subject matter experts for every subject. For example, you’ll be taught the subject “Neurology” by a professor in Neurology, while teaching of the more clinically-oriented courses is performed by experienced chiropractors and/or medical specialists, many of whom are also active researchers.
Diagnostics and Clinics
In the Master's degree programme in Clinical Biomechanics (Chiropractic) focus is placed on topics related to diagnostics, disorders in the extremities (arms and legs), interdisciplinary patient management, coaching training and applied research training. You'll learn how to use your knowledge from the Bachelor programme and other subjects of the Master's section in clinical situations, so that you’ll be able to make a diagnosis, develop an interdisciplinary treatment plan and begin a course of treatment.
The diagnostic subjects require you to acquire a large body of knowledge dealing with a wide range of subject matters. The new knowledge you learn will be connected to everyday life as a chiropractor in one of the Danish back care centres, where you’ll be part of an interdisciplinary treatment team. Here you will encounter patients with a broad range of musculoskeletal disorders, which you will learn to receive, assess, treat and inform.
Become a Chiropractor
In order to become a chiropractor you need to complete the training, consisting of a:

- 2 year Master's degree programme (after completing BA)
- 1 year internship (after completing your Master's)
The master programme gives right to the title Cand. Manu. (Candidata/candidatus manutigii). The English title is Master in Health Science, Clinical Biomechanics.
