USA Colleges Invest In NZ School
29 October 2001
The NZ School of Chiropractic in Auckland today announced an international partnership with five United States Colleges that may well serve as a future model for global partnerships in education.
Board Chairman Noel Pierson said the new affiliation allowed for shared financial as well as human resources in terms of programme development for the NZ School and its intention to attract chiropractic students from the United States, Australia and Pacific Rim countries.
"It also recognises the significant contribution made by the chiropractic profession in NZ and in particular those who had the vision to establish the school eight years ago. This partnership will bring to fruition the dream those pioneers had," said Mr Pierson.
The five United States colleges are Cleveland
Chiropractic College, Kansas City, Missouri;
Cleveland Chiropractic College, Los Angeles; Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa; Palmer College West, San Jose, California; and Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, Spartanburg, South Carolina.
The affiliated colleges all see a need to assist developing international chiropractic programmes whenever possible, and consider that they have the responsibility to the future of the profession to ensure that high quality international chiropractic programmes receive the assistance they need to be successful.
Carl Cleveland III, DC, spokesperson for the affiliated US Colleges said: “The NZ School fully subscribes to the Chiropractic Paradigm developed by the Association of Chiropractic Colleges and maintains a quality academic programme that has internalised clinical competencies parallel to the standards of the Council on Chiropractic Education - USA. The School is positioned to emerge as a major influence for chiropractic education in the South Pacific region," he said.
