Through this CERF conference we aimed to accomplish our mission, which is to build scholarship and research capacity for chiropractic educators throughout the world. On June 26, 2021, we delivered a CERF conference, which spanned 8 hours, and allowing 35 presenters and panelists and approximately 132 registrants to meet. 

This June 2021 Conference specifically focused on research related to chiropractic education and online learning assessment. During this meeting, we took an in depth look at how programs assess learning from a distance, including both summative and formative assessments, either live or asynchronously through technology or the internet. Attendees and presenters represented various regions including Australia, Canada, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, and United States.

If you did not have the chance to attend the research abstract sessions, you will still be able to view the research presentations once the conference proceedings are published in The Journal of Chiropractic Education.

The tutorial sessions focused on assessment, will be posted on the CERF 5-minute mentor page by July 10. 


CERF continues to take steps to accomplish its mission, which is to build scholarship and research capacity for chiropractic educators throughout the world. On December 5, 2020, we delivered our first CERF conference, which spanned 12 hours, and allowed 62 authors, 12 invited panelists, 2 keynote speakers and approximately 90 attendees to meet and address how chiropractic has survived and thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees and presenters represented various regions including Australia, Canada, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, and United States.

This CERF conference provided a platform for 36 scholarly presentations and 6 panel discussions that focused on the effects of the pandemic on chiropractic education. During this meeting, we took an in-depth look at how programs worked to meet program objectives, graduation requirements, accreditation, and other activities. Everyone was buzzing with excitement and were delighted in seeing what others in chiropractic education were doing about COVID-19. If you did not have the chance to attend the sessions, you will still be able to view the research presentations in the conference proceedings that are published in The Journal of Chiropractic Education.
