Chiropractic practice is a healthcare field that focuses on the main body structures: the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. While Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, they focus treatment on adjustments to elements of these body systems, such as the spinal column. All 50 states have licensed doctors of chiropractic and these professionals work in a variety of environments from private practice to hospitals and military settings. More information on chiropractic practice can be found from the Association of Chiropractic Colleges.
Admission to chiropractic college requires three-four years of undergraduate study. Some states require a completed BA or BS degree for licensure. Each chiropractic college has unique admission requirements, meaning students should investigate the pre-requisite courses for any school in which they are interested.
USI is proud to offer a 3+3 articulation agreement with Logan University College of Chiropractic.
Students complete 3 years at USI that include Biology major requirements and USI's Core 39 requirements. Students then complete 3 years at Logan University which serves to initiate their chiropractic training and complete the baccalaureate degree from USI. This program serves to shorten the total time for both degrees by a year. You can find a typical USI course of study here.
