Dr. Phil McMaster

Dr Phil McMaster DC, ACP is the President of the New Zealand College of Chiropractic and a well-respected chiropractor and leader. Dr. McMaster graduated from Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in 1985 and maintained a large subluxation focused practice in Taupo, New Zealand since then until July of 2013. Arguably the largest single chiropractic office in New Zealand during its time, Dr. McMaster has served hundreds of thousands of people in providing chiropractic care of the highest quality.

A leader in his community, Dr. McMaster has held many positions of influence on several organizations as well as designing and producing a weekly local radio show for 10 years. Being a sports fanatic, Phil’s involvement in local and national sporting bodies is not surprising especially his involvement with New Zealand Rugby and the New Zealand Ironman.

Having been part of the initial NZCA led formation group of the College, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for 10 years and a member of the faculty for 25+ years, he has played an integral and vital role in shaping chiropractic education in New Zealand. The NZCC has a worldwide reputation for producing graduates of a very high standard and Dr. McMaster has had a major influence in the strong performance of the College both academically and philosophically.

Dr. McMaster has been the lead lecturer on the philosophy of chiropractic at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic every year since its inception and has presented around the world on the philosophy of chiropractic.
