What are the educational requirements for becoming a chiropractor?

Today's graduating Doctors of Chiropractic have studied and trained in a post-secondary college or university for at least seven years. Just like medical or dental students, they must first complete undergraduate study before applying for admission to a chiropractic college. Becoming a chiropractic physician is a demanding path that includes a minimum of 4,500 hours of intense academic study including classroom learning, clinical science and internship training. During the course of their training, he/she will have studied the following three areas:

• Basic sciences, including anatomy, physiology, pathology (the study of diseases), biochemistry, clinical sciences, X-ray interpretation and differential diagnosis.

• Training in the philosophy and practice of chiropractic medicine.

• Clinical internship with emphasis on hands-on practice.

Your Chiropractic Physician is a primary contact (Otherwise known as a portal of entry provider) just like your family physician, optometrist or dentist. You do not need a referral from your medical doctor or other provider to see a Chiropractic Physician.
