HOW WELL EDUCATED IS YOUR CHIROPRACTOR?
Doctors of Chiropractic Have Six or More Years of College
Doctors of Chiropractic complete 4 years of undergraduate school and 5 years of graduate school. They must complete over 900 clinical hours prior to graduation. They are required to pass four sets of National board examinations to obtain licensure in addition to other requirements for state licensure. Once licensed, continuing post-graduate education is required for annual license renewal.
