The Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sport Science Practitioner (ICCSP) (or alternatively "physician" in those jurisdictions which allow the term), is a post-doctoral professional certification, granted by the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS), through an association with Murdoch University.[1][2] It was previously referred to as the "International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma" up until 2013.).[3][4][5]

The ICCSP is the "minimum qualification required to be part of a FICS chiropractic delegation for a national or international event such as the Olympic and World Games."[6]


The Program is run via several week-end seminars, taught by faculty at accredited Chiropractic Colleges, and other locations around the world.[7][8] A Doctor of Chiropractic can also obtain the credential by submitting national post-doctoral sports Chiropractic credentials, a current CPR certification, and other qualifications to the FICS Education Commission for evaluation.[9]


It is considered a pre-requisite to the Post-Graduate Diploma in Sports Chiropractic program at Murdoch University, in Perth, Australia.[10][11] The ICCSP is recognized by the profession in many countries around the World.[12][13][14][15]
