Objective: The aim of this study is to describe the attitude of Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) chiropractic students toward the International Clinical and Professional Chiropractic Education Position Statement and evidence-based practice (EBP) beliefs. 

Methods: A cross-sectional survey was administered to all the UQTR chiropractic students. Using a five-point Likert scale, students were asked to rate their level of agreement with the position statement (10 items), EBP (2 items), interprofessional collaboration (2 items) and vitalistic philosophy (2 items). 

Results: Survey response rate was 71%. Students most frequently reported strong agreement with the position statement, EBP and interprofessional collaboration. They also most frequently disagreed with vitalistic philosophy. The attitude toward the position statement was positively correlated with the year of study in the program (r=0.10, p=0.019), EBP (r=0.56, p<0.001) and interprofessional collaboration (r=0.45, p <0.001). 

Conclusions: UQTR chiropractic students demonstrate high levels of agreement with EBP and the Education Position Statement.
