Health, Wellness and Campus Facilities

Staying Healthy on Campus

CMCC students have access to fully equipped exercise and training rooms, a large multipurpose gymnasium, a swimming pool and the student lounge, making it easy for students to take a break from studying and engage in physical activity. There is also a Reflection and Meditation Room where students can pause from their day and reflect, meditate and pursue independent spiritual activity. The Room is located in the CMCC Health Sciences Library to enhance its peaceful, quiet atmosphere.

Students' Council Health & Dental Plan

All Canadian students are charged a fee for the Students' Council Health & Dental Plan. This plan does not include international students (please refer to the International Student Health Insurance section in the International Applicants page). The Plan provides coverage for 12 months, from September 1 through August 31. If a student is already covered by an equivalent extended health and dental plan, he or she may opt out of the Plan, online, during the Change-of-Coverage Period (typically within the first three weeks of classes). The Plan also provides the option to enroll a spouse and/or dependents by paying an additional fee.

Clinics

In Years I, II and III, students receive almost 3,000 hours of education and hands-on clinical training. In Year IV they apply this knowledge in a real clinic setting as chiropractic interns in CMCC's teaching clinics, under the supervision of clinical faculty. In addition to our on-campus walk-in clinic, CMCC has a network of external chiropractic clinics throughout the Greater Toronto Area. These community-based clinics give our students and interns a broader clinical experience with more focused patient populations, including Toronto's urban aboriginal community, adults and children who are behaviourally, mentally and physically challenged, and patients with HIV/AIDS. Many clinics are multi-disciplinary environments where our chiropractors work together with a variety of health professionals.
