  Title Commentary. Professional attitudes regarding research - changing the culture one student at a time
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2008 Sep;52(3):143-148
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Attitudes in the profession towards chiropractic research, infrastructure, funding and opportunity seems to have increasingly become a subject of discussion. In perhaps the most detailed evaluation and critique of the topic Flanagan and Giordano discuss the role of the institution in developing clinicians and researchers as well as review the demography of faculty involved in research at chiropractic institutions.2 Their survey of 15 North American chiropractic colleges revealed that only 5% of full time faculty who hold the DC degree were actively involved in research. In addition, the survey revealed that only 10% of PhD and 25% of DC/PhD faculty were engaged in research. The authors suggest that chiropractic programs have failed to produce opportunities for faculty as researchers, and they advocate for greater institutional and professional support of research within the schools and the profession.
