In order to receive the Doctorate of Chiropractic (DC), the candidates must complete four academic years of doctorate-level education. For the first two years, this education largely mirrors medical school, with classes covering anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, pathology, radiology and diagnosis. Chiropractors take more units in neurology than general-practitioner MD’s. The chiropractic education diverges from the medical education as they study adjustive techniques rather than pharmacology and surgery. Chiropractors must complete an internship and must also pass National Board Examinations prior to being licensed by the state. Doctors of Chiropractic are licensed to practice in all 50 states and make up the third-largest licensed health care provider group in the United States.
