Should students do placements with chiros?

Last week, a leading university announced it had launched an investigation into why an anti-vaccination chiropractor, who has described pharmaceuticals as "snake oil", has been providing placements to medical students.

Jason Parkes was apparently given the position with the University of NSW Rural Clinical School at Coffs Harbour a decade ago.

While the appointment lasted only a few years, the chiropractor started taking on third-year medical students in his practice this February as part of their allied health placement.
