  • Today's Doctors of Chiropractic are very well educated, not only with regard to the spine, but  with the human body as a whole.  Chiropractors in the United States (and many other countries as well) are considered Primary Care Physicians.  This means that any patient can go to the chiropractor directly, regardless of the ailment.  The chiropractor is very well qualified to perform the exam and diagnose the patient, and then either treat or refer the patient, depending on the diagnosis.
  • The typical training of a doctor of chiropractic includes:  a minimum of six (usually eight) years of graduate level education, a year of supervised clinical practice, a four-part national board examination, and a state examination for individual state licensure.
  • Below is a comparison of the typical education of a doctor of chiropractic (DC) and a medical doctor (MD).  -Information based on schools in the state of Oregon.
