General Information on Chiropractic Education
To receive a Doctorate of Chiropractic (DC), candidates must complete four, academic years of doctorate-level education. During the first two years, this education largely parallels medical school, covering anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, pathology, radiology and diagnosis. In fact, chiropractors take more units in neurology than general practitioner MDs. Taking a holistic approach, chiropractic education diverges from the medical education as they study adjustive techniques rather than pharmacology and surgery. Chiropractors must complete an internship and pass National Board Examinations prior to being licensed by the State of New York. Doctors of Chiropractic are licensed to practice in all 50 states, and make up the third largest healthcare provider group in the United States.
