Here at the Academy of Advanced Practice Chiropractic Medicine, our goal is to promote chiropractic legislation and continuing chiropractic education through our organization by expanding scope of practice through chiropractic programs.

Quick History And Overview:

AAPCM came from the merging of two separate chiropractic organizations dedicated to promoting the field within the medical community, the American Academy of Chiropractic Physicians (AACP, formed in 1999) and the Academy of Chiropractic Physicians (ACP, formed in 2014). In 2015, both organizations merged under the AACP trademark, but in 2017 re-branded under the current name, the Academy of Advanced Practice Chiropractic Medicine (AAPCM).

The AAPCM is proud to be one of the organizational homes within the Association of Health Sciences Colleges and Universities (AHSCU), a non profit corporation collaborating with educational institutions across the nation to increase the scope of practice for both emerging and accepted fields of practice.

Our goal is to promote the field of chiropractics through chiropractic programs, legislation and continuing education to create plenary standards and practices, including the ability to write prescriptions when education and certification level allow for it. Our goals are to further recognition of the field and advanced practice, develop clinical training standards, build our membership, and promote our values of patient centered care, professional integrity, evidence based practices and inter-professional collaboration.
