Diplomate Presentations are held on a weekend to provide a sharing of information from Diplomates in the Cranio-Cervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP). The curriculum will include an introduction to the Council and its history, vision and mission as well as the latest information about the Cranio-Cervical Junction Imaging and corrective procedures.
Degreed Health Care Providers, Chiropractors and Chiropractic students may attend for a fee and registration is required two weeks in advance of the presentation. The presentation is limited to twenty (20) attendees. The ICA or the Council reserves the right to cancel a presentation if a minimum of ten (10) registrations are not received.
Diplomates who have completed the three-hundred (300) hour training in the DCCJP are allowed to apply to the Curriculum Committee of the Council to be accepted to present. Requests for Presenters may also be made to the Curriculum Committee by members of the Chiropractic Profession. Presenters after being selected are then evaluated by the attendees of the Presentations for continued acceptance.
