      ================== ARTICLE START ==================
      A chiropractic college develops and educates professional
      physicians who specialize in treating patients with skeletal,
      muscular and nervous disorders, while avoiding surgical and
      drug interventions. A chiropractic school´┐Żs programs includes
      at least 4200 hours of combined laboratory, clinical and
      classroom experiences. The chiropractic student learns how to
      diagnose patients and develop doctor-patient relationships
      while enhancing their communications skills.

      Treatment techniques, physical therapy, professional issues,
      manipulation, spinal adjustment and other therapeutic
      procedures are taught as well. The clinical and laboratory
      components are an integral part of a chiropractic college.
      Students are given the opportunity to put what they have
      studied into practice and begin treating actual patients while
      under close supervision.

      Prerequisites required for entry into a chiropractic college
      include successful completion of at least 90 semester hours of
      undergraduate education, classes in all the basic sciences
      (e.g. Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition...), and a
      cumulative GPA of at least 2.5. Most applicants to chiropractic
      schools already possess a baccalaureate degree, usually in one
      of the sciences. The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE)
      sets forth guidelines which colleges must follow when
      establishing standards and admission requirements.

      Most chiropractic colleges offer a typical four-year education,
      although some have a three-year accelerated program. The first
      two years strengthen the background in basic sciences, while
      the second two focus more on clinical application. The average
      cost of tuition varies widely from $11,000 to $20,000 a year,
      depending on whether the program runs 9 or 12 months a year.
      Traditional financial aid is available however. On successful
      graduation from a chiropractic college, the student receives
      the degree Doctor of Chiropractic and is then eligible to sit
      the State boards examination and become licensed.

      After graduation, the prospects are almost endless. There is an
      employment rate of nearly 100% for new graduates and
      chiropractors rarely ever go through career switches. The
      chiropractic field is one of the fastest growing career fields
      out there and is expected to increase even more because of the
      interest in natural healing. Most graduates become private
      practitioners or enter group practices while a few conduct
      research, work in hospitals or teach. To maintain licensure,
      12-48 hours of continued education is required yearly. In this
      way, chiropractors are enabled to earn their diplomat status in
      specialties such as sports injuries, pediatrics, neurology,
      rehabilitation, family practice, nutrition, radiology, internal
      disorders... Many chiropractors are beginning to use alternative
      therapies such as massage or heat therapy and are focusing on
      holistic healing and lifestyle changes.

      Currently there are 19 chiropractic colleges that are
      accredited by the CCE. Finding the perfect one involves
      analyzing and comparing what each offers. Check out the school
      environment and the curriculum. Find out if the program teaches
      alternative or adjunct therapies and if a broad spectrum of
      manipulative techniques is included. Explore the clinical
      setting and see how involved the students are and how many
      patients they get to treat. For most students, hands-on
      application is the most important part.

      A chiropractic education is an excellent choice with many
      benefits. More and more of the chiropractic colleges are
      developing pre-chiropractic training so the education can be
      completed all at one place. The average annual earning of a
      chiropractor is upwards of $60,000 and steadily increasing.
      Compared to this, a chiropractic education is relatively
      inexpensive and quickly pays for itself.
