Abstract/Notes While bullying and harassment occur in all organisations it seems to be endemic in university-based clinical programs. Arrogance is a defence mechanism however it introduces uncertainty in the students’ learning experience. Uncertainty may be minimised when an institution adopts a model of care with which all teaching and patient-management decisions can be aligned. This paper summarises a presentation by the writer to the Quo Vadis Conference on Chiropractic Philosophy at Macquarie University, Sydney, in May 2010. It summaries the process followed by the Discipline of Chiropractic at RMIT University, Melbourne, to develop and implement a model of care. The desired outcome of such a model is two fold: in any given clinical situation the decisions and actions of each individual clinician would be closely similar; and the decisions and actions of each clinician would be positively synergistic with the decisions and actions of the classroom educators and aligned with the philosophical position of the RMIT chiropractic program. The goal is greater certainty in clinical learning and enhanced patient care within the evidence-based application of a contemporary understanding of the vertebral subluxation complex that respects the historical premise of the discipline as such has developed since the founding of the discipline. The group’s work is now to extend the philosophy embedded within the RMIT Model of Care to treatment pathways for the optimal management of common clinical presentations.
