Methods: A team of senior academic staff addressed a wide range of issues in the development of the new program. A team of core academic staff, together with module leaders, was charged with designing and writing a new B.Sc. Chiropractic degree program. The program progression is designed to provide increasing intellectual autonomy as critical skills are developed. The team also addressed the need for new academic and administrative structures to support the new course. Results: The elements of the curriculum were achieved through a development process that involved the entire academic team. The program has been validated by a United Kingdom University as a full-time program.
Discussion: The high level of involvement and communication between the academic and administrative team has become an embedded culture and will have considerable positive impact. The new program has augmented and improved the College's performance in a number of ways.
