Der Lehrplan wird fast ausschließlich von Dr. John C. Kois unter Verwendung der Forschungsergebnisse des Kois Research Center unterrichtet. Das Kois Center ist das einzige Weiterbildungsprogramm im Land, das unabhängige Forschung betreibt und veröffentlicht. Jeder Kurs wird jedes Jahr auf der Grundlage neuer wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse aktualisiert. Einige unserer Kurse, wie z. B. Biomechanik I und II, beruhen ausschließlich auf unserer eigenen Forschung.
Wir haben kleine Klassen mit bis zu 37 Teilnehmern und werden in den Kursen von Mentoren und dem klinischen Ausbilder betreut und unterstützt. Diese Personen sorgen für ein unterstützendes und sehr interaktives Lernumfeld vor, während und nach dem Kurs. Sobald die Studenten den Lehrplan des Kois-Zentrums absolviert haben, werden sie zu Absolventen des Zentrums und sind zur Teilnahme am jährlichen Symposium eingeladen. Das Jahressymposium bietet die Gelegenheit, sich mit den Absolventen des Kois-Zentrums und ihren Familien auszutauschen und sich über die neuesten Entwicklungen im Lehrplan zu informieren.
Das Kois Center ist ein selbstfinanziertes Lernzentrum. Wir akzeptieren keine Sponsorengelder und lassen uns nicht von der Agenda oder der Botschaft von Sponsoren beeinflussen.
