AECC University College Student Wins Royal College of Chiropractors Essay Competition

The Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC) launched a new undergraduate essay competition, open to all undergraduate chiropractic students across the UK. The competition was an opportunity for students to develop and share their thinking about the current status and/or future of the profession.

We're thrilled to announce that Jack Humphrey, a student on our Master of Chiropractic course, won the competition. Jack will receive a certificate and an expenses-paid trip to the RCC's Annual General Meeting in London on 30th January 2019. The winners and runners-up essay will also be published in an RCC publication. Jack will also receive a £150 cash prize. He commented:

"Firstly, I am very happy to have won this competition. I wrote about a lack of quality evidence in the field of chiropractic and its effect on the application of evidence informed practice. It was surprisingly fun to write and I learned a lot from it. I'm looking forward to attending the AGM in January." 

Head of School of Chiropractic, Philip Dewhurst commented on Jack's triumph: "This is a fantastic achievement for Jack and we're very proud of his success. It is pleasing to see our students are already active in the chiropractic community and these opportunities, such as the RCC competition, are a way they can be. Developing relationships and applying their knowledge early on puts our students at an advantage once they graduate."
