The below information will provide you with the foundation information about the program and what is involved. One of FICS primary objectives is promoting excellence in postgraduate education and practice in sports chiropractic worldwide, in part through the development of postgraduate sports chiropractic programs. FICS's aim is to set an appropriate minimum standard in theoretical and practical sports chiropractic education for chiropractors wanting to develop special competence in the field of sports chiropractic and to be qualified to serve on FICS teams, or teams selected with assistance from FICS, at international events.
The International Certificate in Sports Chiropractic (ICSC) program produces a well-rounded individual chiropractor that is qualified to work at sporting events throughout the world. Furthermore, it is the minimum qualification required to be part of a FICS chiropractic delegation at regional sporting events, international events such as the regional and world championships, the World Games or the Olympic Games.
It is mandatory to have an ICSC and be a member of FICS to be selected for a FICS team. This is necessary to assure the games organizers and the athletes that all doctors on the team are properly qualified and experienced, and to promote the professionalism and future of sports chiropractic. This is what differentiates FICS members from other attending professionals.
The ICSC program is a postgraduate certification program that is a combination of distance learning via an electronic learning system (eLS) and two-weekend seminars (hand-on modules). The faculty for the seminars consists of internationally prominent sports chiropractors with extensive experience in treating athletes at international sporting events.
