Each year chiropractic education providers are required to complete an annual monitoring form. The results of the survey (reported as Chiropractic Education Review 2021- 2022) are used to ensure that undergraduate chiropractic education and training remains of a high standard.

This year's report is particularly important as we move towards implementing the new Education Standards with an increased focus on patients and their care. This is also the first year that the survey has asked providers to report student data on the protected characteristics of age, sex, disability, ethnicity and sexual orientation.
