VALUES

Tenets our members stand for:

1. SCIENCE

We are evidence informed chiropractors who reject pseudoscience and encourage further learning of our craft and refinement of the known knowledge base.

2. PROFESSIONALISM

We support and demand ethical behavior from our members and from our profession, We support altruism, accountability, excellence, and integrity.

3. COMMUNITY

We have developed a community of like minded chiropractors to learn, share, and communicate with. We support, network with, and nurture relationships with other medical professionals.

4. ACTION

We take action to move the profession forward in the realms of professionalism, practice operations, patient care, research, politics, and leadership. When necessary, we act as a watchdog group against unethical and unprofessional behavior within the chiropractic profession.

5. PHILOSOPHY

We aim to move towards a philosophy of scientific clinical chiropractic practice. Within that philosophy are the concepts of conservatism, holism, and freedom to practice as fully and duly permitted within a chiropractor’s license and scope.

6. RESPONSIBILITY

We understand that our ultimate responsibility is to our patients and the communities we serve. We put no idea, dogma, agenda, philosophy, or profession above that. We believe in what is good for people first, above what is good for chiropractic, or our practices.
