Abstract

This paper reports on the proceedings of the Anatomy Education in Chiropractic Programs Symposium, held at Macquarie University on 20 July 2012. At the symposium, the first of its kind, representatives from four Australian and New Zealand chiropractic schools presented and discussed their respective institutions' anatomy programs. All schools, it would appear, have very strong and well-conceived anatomy programs. Several research papers on anatomy education were also presented. In a panel discussion which concluded this symposium, it was highlighted that there was a need for better collaboration between schools and for the development of a community of practice. Ways of achieving this were discussed.
