To Become a Chiropractor

Application

Fostering More Chiropractors to Serve the Community

The Scholarship for Chiropractic Studies Programme is now accepting applications

Hong Kong Chiropractic College Foundation (HKCCF) aims at establishing a chiropractic college in Hong Kong through fundraising. It wishes to foster more local chiropractors to serve the general public in Hong Kong. As of today, there are only around 280 practitioners to serve nearly 7.5 million local people, that is, each chiropractor needs to serve as many as 26,800 people. This is far from sufficient! At present, all registered chiropractors in Hong Kong are mainly graduated from USA, Canada, UK and Australia. The number of local chiropractors has been increasing at a slow pace.

With the objective of supporting young people who are interested in pursuing a chiropractic career, HKCCF, a charitable organization, is funding the Scholarship to let eligible people study Chiropractic (Master of Chiropractic) in Anglo-European College of Chiropractic University College (AECCUC), UK. The scholarship covers the entire tuition fees for the 4 or 5 years of study (depending on the entry year level Year 0 or 1).
