Abstract/Notes The formal teaching of spinal manipulation in Australia for chiropractors and osteopaths began in private, freestanding institutions, first in Victoria in the 1930s, New South Wales in 1959 and South Australia in 1963. These institutions followed the inherent procedures of contemporary professions such as medicine, law and education. Spinal manipulation education was therefore greatly influenced by the processes emanating from the United Kingdom. Dedicated individuals involved in natural health care fostered the education of manipulation in Australia in response to community need. As time passed, the education process became increasingly influenced by chiropractors from the United States and Canada. This paper traces the origin and development of the Sydney College of Chiropractic (SCC), which has made a major contribution to chiropractic and osteopathic education in Australia. Included in this study are elements of the Pax College of Osteopathy, Ballarat, Victoria and Caringbah, NSW; the Roberts Health Academy, Melbourne, which later became the Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA); the South Australian Institute of Chiropractic and Osteopathy, Adelaide; the Kjellberg Method, Queensland; and the recognition of Australian-trained chiropractors by legislative bodies. The developing educational process includes the accreditation program conducted by SCC for further education of the chiropractic profession in Australia and the eventual establishment, through amalgamation of the SCC with Macquarie University (MU), of the world’s first chiropractic course in a public-funded university.
