Pre-Chiropractic

Description

The Pre-Chiropractic program at BSC provides the first two years of required classes for students planning a career as a chiropractic practitioner. Because chiropractic schools differ in their requirements, BSC offers a suggested curriculum as a guide. Study includes general chemistry and biology, organic chemistry, college physics, algebra trigonometry, and statistics.

Preparation

High school students interested in chiropractic should pursue study heavy in the sciences.

Requirements

Students completing the suggested curriculum requirements receive an Associate in Science degree and are eligible for transfer to a four-year institution.

Colleges of chiropractic often require 90 semester hours, many from upper division classes, prior to admission. It is critical that students consult the catalog of the transfer school and modify BSC’s suggested curriculum where necessary.

Contact your BSC advisor for assistance with transfer planning.

Career Opportunities

Many schools of chiropractic are accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education.

Students may contact the Council on Chiropractic Education at www.cce-usa.org for more information about schools and admission requirements.
