The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) has updated the Clinical Placement Guidance setting out the general principles that education providers should consider as they set up and design clinical placements. The new document is supplementary to the Education Standards and includes quality assurance considerations, ensuring parity of placement experience and insurance arrangements for the duration of a placement.
On its website, the General Chiropractic Council wrote:
“Clinical experience is a vital part of the course for the approx. 250 students that graduate from UK chiropractic institutions every year.
“Hosting a clinical placement can be as rewarding for the clinician as the student, with the opportunity to connect with a possible future associate as well as refreshing your knowledge and technique.”
