Chiropractic education in terms of classroom hours is compatible to that of medicine. In fact the two professions use many of the same texts. The difference is that Chiropractic students will have much greater training in diagnosis and correction of the spine as well as X-ray analysis, while the medical student will concentrate more on pharmacology and general surgery. A Chiropractor’s education never really ends. Most Chiropractors complete many hours of post-graduate studies and continuing education courses. Virtually every Chiropractor attends seminars, scientific symposia and reads professional journals to keep up with the latest research.
