New Chiropractic Program Opens in Turkey

New Chiropractic Program Opens in TurkeyThe first chiropractic educational programme in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East Region had its opening ceremony on September 4th at Bahcesehir University, Istanbul, Turkey.

This is a two year second degree program to meet the requirements to start a proper Chiropractic program immediately after. There were close to one hundred applicants and 22 were chosen, most are Physios and 2 are physiatrists.

Development of the programme, which will be taught within the University Bahcesehir’s faculty of medicine, is the product of collaborative development between Behcesehir University and senior members of the Turkish Chiropractic Association, including past President Dr Mustafa Agaoglu and current President Dr Aurelie Belsot.

There were over 200 attendees at the ceremony. Dr Stathis Papdopoulos, president of the Eastern Mediterranean & Middle East Chiropractic Federation (EMMECF) and Dr Oystein Ogre, ECU President attended the formal opening ceremony.

With this opportunity FLAQ would like to congratulate the Turkish Chiropractic Association and particularly Drs Aurelie Belsot, president and Mustafa Agaoglu for their hard work and determination to develop the profession in Turkey.
