Have you ever wondered how much education your Doctor of Chiropractic receives compared to a Medical Doctor? Look at these basic educational requirements for graduates of both chiropractic colleges and medical schools. Each has its own specialties, but many people are surprised to learn that the hours of classroom instruction are about the same.
Doctors of Chiropractic must satisfy a demanding academic course that leads to a professional degree requiring seven years of academic study - three years preparatory and four years professional.
Chiropractors must also meet strict educational requirements, including approximately 600 hours of internship, which makes them eligible for licensure in all states and Canadian Provinces.
All states require that Chiropractors pass through comprehensive national board examinations as a prerequisite for licensure, and must stay abreast in the latest health care techniques by attending seminars and other special study programs.
If you want to maintain your good health or you are in need of relief from any of a wide range of ailments, pain, or suffering, don't overlook the Doctor of Chiropractic. He or she has worked and studied many long hours to gain the necessary knowledge to help you feel well again. Give your Chiropractor, and yourself, the chance you both deserve!
If you know others who are uninformed about the chiropractors' education, why not share this information with them!
Remember, they, too may benefit from today's scientific chiropractic care.
