Doctor of Chiropractic Program
The doctor of chiropractic program (DC) is a rigorous 12 academic-quarter, first-professional doctorate program that can be completed in three-four years.
Graduates of the chiropractic program are primary care chiropractic physicians that have demonstrated mastery of the program’s competencies, all of which support and underpin knowledge, skills, critical thinking and professionalism expected of competent, caring chiropractic physicians.
