How are Chiropractors educated?

In order to be accepted into chiropractic college, students must have completed at least 3 years of post-secondary studies – though most have completed a degree prior to pursuing chiropractic.  Our chiropractors have been educated at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto, the only English-speaking chiropractic institution in Canada and a leader in the field. In general, Chiropractors earn a doctor of chiropractic degree after 4 years of training at an accredited chiropractic educational institution.  The focus of the education is basic sciences, nutrition, biomechanics (how the body moves), anatomy, physiology, radiology, manual technique application, pathology and much more.  At CMCC, the first three years are mainly in the classroom, while the fourth year consists of two six month internships in teaching clinics across the Greater Toronto Area. This final year allows students the invaluable opportunity to treat patients under the direction of an experienced supervising clinician.  Once studies are completed, all chiropractors must pass national qualifying examinations and be provincially licensed in order to practice in Canada.
