Apr. 16, Simcoe, Ont. – Canadian Chiropractor (CC) invites DCs and chiropractic students to its Business and Professional Growth Forum to be held at McMaster University’s “McMaster Innovation Park” (MIP) in Hamilton on June 22, 2013.

Canadian Chiropractor is a completely Canadian owned and managed magazine, serving DCs and chiropractic students across the country. Through print and digital media, CC provides members of the profession with news; informative articles on a number of topics that impact DCs in their practice; event listings; classified ads; product and service information; and more, all from a uniquely Canadian perspective that is relevant to practitioners in all provinces.

CC has now partnered with MIP, McMaster University’s hub for research and innovation in, among other areas, health care and business, to offer DCs and chiropractic students a continued education event aimed at exploring sound business practices that will highlight their clinical skills – and/or expand their clinical toolbox – and facilitate greater access to their services within their communities.


Learners will hear from seasoned colleagues who have met with success in their profession and are willing to share tips and ideas. In order to accommodate varying learning styles, concepts will be delivered through a combination of podium presentations, with visual components, and an interactive teaching model.

Please see the full program below.
Six structured CEUs are available for attending this event.

Registration is $85 – an early bird rate of $65 is available until June 1- and includes lunch and parking.
