Re: chiropractic in Switzerland.

One has to worry about a profession that - in my opinion - feels the need to silence criticism and scrutiny of the claims made about the efficacy of what they do.

Re: chiropractic in Switzerland.

just had dinner with friends who are Chiropractors here in Switzerland. The story came down to this: Even though one is from a fellow EU country and already had an established practice, his partner is Swiss, he could only practice here after doing the required apprenticeships and working for nothing for two years and he couldn't even apprentice through her practice. There is no way of skirting the requirements when working with another person's body and skeletal system. The regulatory agency needs to know that you have the competence (and language ability: German, French, or Italian for the exam) to practice on its citizens. I agree completely. My advice is don't try to circumnavigate the system...
I wish you good luck if you do decide to open a practice here!

Re: chiropractic in Switzerland.

I know this is a very old thread, but I stumbled across it when looking for something else.

I would be concerned about any practitioner who was looking for loopholes or ways to get out of fulfilling the requirements to practice. The reason Switzerland has additional "hoops" is because they have among the highest standards for chiropractors in Europe. Additionally, they accept qualifications from only the top international schools in the world. The Netherlands, unfortunately, has much lower standards. Docs in the Netherlands may voluntarily maintain high standards in education and practice, just that they are not required to do so as much as the Swiss docs are.

Practicing chiropractor or any health care practice without being licensed to do so, even if you call it something else, is still practicing without a license, and is wrong both legally and ethically. Those who choose to do so bring the reputation of the entire profession down.
