    You may be asking, “What kind of training do chiropractors receive?”

    Chiropractic training is a four-year academic program consisting of both classroom and clinical instruction. At least three years of preparatory college work are required for admission to chiropractic schools.

    Students who graduate receive the degree of Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) and are eligible to take state licensure board examinations in order to practice. Some schools also offer postgraduate courses, including two- to three-year residency programs in specialized fields.

    Chiropractic training typically includes:

    • Coursework in anatomy, physiology, microbiology, biochemistry, pathology, nutrition, public health, and many other subjects
    • The principles and practice of chiropractic
    • Research methods and procedures
    • Direct experience in caring for patients

    The Council on Chiropractic Education, an agency certified by the U.S. Department of Education, is the accrediting body for chiropractic colleges in the United States.
