Qualifications for Practicing Chiropractic

In order to become a licensed doctor of chiropractic, an individual must meet stringent testing, academic and professional requirements. Currently, an individual must complete the four major steps shown below in order to become a chiropractic practitioner:

  1. Complete required general college-level studies (Bachelor's degree required by some states)

  2. Obtain a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and complete clinical externship through an accredited four-year chiropractic program

  3. Pass required National Board or other exams

  4. Meet individual state requirements for licensure

Chiropractic Training

Government inquiries (some of which are described [here]), as well as independent investigations by medical practitioners, have affirmed that today's chiropractic academic training is of equivalent standard to medical training in all pre-clinical subjects. High standards in chiropractic education are maintained by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) and its Commission on Accreditation, as recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Some Chiropractic colleges require a Bachelor's degree before enrollment.

A doctor of chiropractic's training generally requires a minimum of six years of college study (two years of which are undergraduate course work) and an internship prior to entering practice. Postdoctoral training in a variety of clinical disciplines and specialties is also available through accredited colleges and specialty councils.

Chiropractic Licensing

Chiropractic is one of the many occupations which are regulated by state licensing agencies. The requirements for chiropractic licensure vary from state to state (and country to country). Some states require a Bachelor's degree as a prerequisite for licensure.

To assist the various regulatory agencies in assessing candidates for licensure, the National Board administers examinations to individuals currently in the chiropractic educational system or who have completed a chiropractic educational program. The National Board also offers an examination designed for previously licensed individuals. A candidate for chiropractic licensure may request that transcripts of scores from National Board examinations be forwarded to licensing agencies which assess eligibility for licensure.

Scores from National Board examinations are made available to licensing agencies throughout the U.S. and in some foreign countries including Canda, the United Kingdom, France and Australia.
