The vision for PAIC builds on North American experiences in creation and sustainability of academic health centers, with a culture of seamless integration of research, education, and practice. As the newest chiropractic academic institution in the world, PAIC intends to incorporate leading edge technology into all facets of its operation. A flagship research program and a network of multi-disciplinary primary care clinics will be operational from day one. Enrollment is planned for 150 students per year into a four-year program, resulting in a student profile of approximately 600 FTEs of Canadian and international students at steady-state.
