What Type of Training do Chiropractors Receive?

Those looking to enter the field of chiropractic must hold an undergraduate degree before being able to proceed within one of Canada’s schools of chiropractic. Canada is home to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and the Université du Québec à Trois Rivières, both of which offer courses of study similar to those of other doctoral-level health care programs.

A chiropractic student in Canada is initially required to complete a minimum of three years of university before becoming eligible for admission within the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College Doctorate of Chiropractic degree program, and upon admission, students must complete four years of full-time study, including a year-long clinical internship. Once a student is enrolled in chiropractic education, they will complete courses in such areas as anatomy, neuroscience, biochemistry, radiology, pathology, orthopedics and much more; and will complete hands-on clinical experience under faculty supervision.

A complete chiropractic education curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience, as well as at least 555 hours of learning about adjustive techniques and spinal analysis. Once a student graduates from a chiropractic program, they receive a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, and are eligible to take examinations through the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board in order to obtain licensure.
