The Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sport Science Practitioner (or alternatively "physician" in those jurisdictions which allow the term) (ICSSD), formerly called "International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma"[1] (As of June, 2013 the FICS Education Commission voted to change the name [2]). [3] is a post-doctoral professional certification, granted by the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS), through an association with Murdoch University.[4] [5]

The ICSSD 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,[7] taught by faculty at accredited Chiropractic Colleges[8], and other locations around the world[9]. 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.

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