The early, formative years of Chiropractic education, like those of medicine, may have left much to be desired. But this is true of nearly every science in its infancy.
Doctors of Chiropractic must satisfy a demanding academic course that leads to a first professional degree requiring six academic years of study
Chiropractors must meet stringent educational requirements, including approximately 600 hours of externship, which qualify them for licensure in all states and Canadian provinces. Chiropractors are required to pass stringent national board examinations as a prerequisite for licensure in most states. And, in most states, the Doctor of Chiropractic must stay abreast of the latest health care techniques by attending seminars and other special study programs.
If you know others who are uninformed about a Chiropractor’s education, why not share this information with them! Remember that they too may benefit from today’s scientific Chiropractic care!
*The class hours for basic science comparisons were compiled and averaged
following a review of curricula of 18 chiropractic colleges and 22 medical schools,
based on the Association of American Medical colleges Curriculum
Directory (AAMC), Vickie Ahari, Editor, and the Chiropractic college Admissions
and Curriculum directory, K. Magarian and K. McNamee, editors.
