Positives - small classes, one on one tutoring available, comphrehensive examinations.
Negatives - little ""real world"" experience because of the content and legislation around the profession, constantly felt like our course versus all other health courses.
There are plenty of ""Jobs"" however they only pay per patient therefore earnings are not great straight out of uni as ""outsiders"" would think. A lot of principal practictioners aretaking advantage of new graduates and exploiting them. so you learn some pretty hard lessons early on.
My advice to future students is: I would ask them: Do you want a job or a business? because this course leads you to a career in business and not a 9-5 choose your own hours business, its tough and only those with grit will do well.
It is the only course for chiropractic in Victoria so choice is limited. In this course we were taught to be safe chiropractors but it was very unorganized and we learnt little on business management, marketing ourselves or chiropractic.
My advice to future students is: Make sure you find really good mentors within the profession whom you trust to guide you where RMIT fails
Not very organised but brilliant content
My advice to future students is: Be very organised with self time
Course was interesting and engaging, however didn't really prepare for real world work place and the realities of practicing as an associate chiropractor
My advice to future students is: Make sure you are aware of the magnitude of the challenges you will face in your first years in this profession
Positive: some great lecturers provided some interesting content
Negative: too many to list
My advice to future students is: Make sure you really know what kind of jobs you’re capable/ incapable of getting once you’ve graduated
Needed to mesh more with other uni courses - chiro tends to be a bit separate and would be good to spend more time on the sciences. More qualified teachers would be better too.
My advice to future students is: Study ahead in the notes as much as possible
I find Uni.. RMIT, fine if you are in city campus, not many care about the students studying in the campus out of Melbourne CBD.
Positives: Students can get a Dr. title after graduate from this course. Chiropractic is one of the primary medical professional divisions and the top 8 AUS uni do not offer this course. RMIT has been ranked as one of the well-known uni to provide this course. The course connects with the alumni and the industry very close, there is guest speaker night nearly every month.
Negatives: Certain proportions of tutors are working part-time. Not easy to contact them. Some of the courses are not well-organized with misunderstanding in the teaching/assignments/assessments, making it's like not professional to teach professional knowledge. Only encourage students to use one of the a lot techniques, not encourage/guide students or provide in-class resources to learn some more techniques.
My advice to future students is: Don't think this is a program that a student with ATAR below 70.00 can handle it well.
