Program accreditation is a multi-level process which aims to evaluate and continuously improve educational effectiveness based on firstly self-evaluation by the relevant program followed by verification and validation by the Council.
The purpose of the accreditation process is to determine that chiropractic programs:
- have a clearly defined mission and goals consistent with the Foreword of the Standards, with educationally-appropriate objectives;
- maintain conditions under which the achievement of these objectives can reasonably be expected;
- are in fact achieving these objectives substantially; and
- can be expected to continue to achieve these objectives in the future.
