  Title Analysis of the relationship between program design and professional practice in CMCC's undergraduate chiropractic program
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2000 Dec;44(4):230-244
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes This study examines the linkage between education and professional practice. Using a consumer-based retrospective survey, alumni from the 1993 to the 1998 CMCC graduating classes were asked to evaluate how well they believed that their undergraduate program had prepared them for professional practice. Alumni responses were collected under the overall category of preparation for practice, and also under the more specific categories of appropriateness of course content, appropriateness of time allocation, and ‘unnecessary’ repetition of content. Findings from this study showed that, overall, the CMCC undergraduate chiropractic program prepared its students well for professional practice and, where more specific program concerns were identified, modifications may be called for across a multitude of data variables. This study shows that a retrospective analysis based on the experiences and reflections of the CMCC alumni of their program presents a reliable and valid method for curriculum review. The data collected support the assumption that a linkage exists between undergraduate education and professional practice.
