The Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (WIOC) is a vibrant centre that provides superb teaching and practical hands-on support to students looking to pursue a career in the chiropractic profession. Studying a chiropractic degree at the University of South Wales has provided our graduates with a great opportunity to launch themselves into a chiropractic career of their choice; many of our graduates have remained locally and set up in practice, others have ventured further afield.
Furthering our commitment to ensuring professional competence and career development, WIOC provides a CPD seminar programme offering evening, one day and weekend seminars that will ensure skills and knowledge are challenged, enhanced and kept up to date. Current guidelines are that 30 CPD hours are advised to keep professional competence up to date.
