Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.) comprise the second largest health care profession with over 50,000 practitioners in the U.S. They earn the title “doctor” along with medical doctors (M.D.), doctors of osteopathy (D.O.), and dentists (D.D.S.).

The educational process leading to the title Doctor of Chiropractic is quite similar to that of an M.D. and D.O.. In order to earn a D.C. degree, a student must complete several years of pre-chiropractic studies at colleges or universities, followed by 5 academic years of chiropractic education (totaling a minimum of 7 years of study). The chiropractic student’s last year is spent in clinical internship (similar to MD or DO “rotations”). During this time the chiropractic intern, under the supervision of a licensed D.C., will consult, examine and treat patients in a clinic setting. Upon graduation and earning the Doctor of Chiropractic degree, a state licensing exam must be passed in order to practice.

Chiropractic students study many of the same textbooks as medical and osteopathic students. As a matter of fact, a chiropractic student accumulates mores course hours in anatomy, physiology, bio-mechanics (how the body moves), neurology, and nutrition, than their medical and osteopathic colleagues.
