Chiropractors are clinicians that focus on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders through adjustment and manipulation of the spine. As a licensed chiropractor, you will help reduce patient pain and improve their mobility while promoting a healthy lifestyle.
To become a chiropractor, you will need to earn a 4-year Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree and a state license. As of 2022, there are 17 programs accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education in the United States.
The admission criteria for chiropractic degree programs are varied. Students should work with their advisor to ensure all pre-requisite courses are completed in a timely fashion depending on the programs to which you plan to apply.
From the recommendations from the Association of Chiropractic Colleges: 24 hours in life and physical sciences, half with lab. This could be met with a combination of the courses listed below.
