Chiropractic School in Connecticut - CT

A pre-chiropractic study in Connecticut may require three years (ninety credits) of undergraduate coursework, with science requirements in anatomy, physiology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, general physics and mathematics.

Among the basic sciences classes that are part of training are cell and tissue microscopic anatomy, pathology physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutrition, microbiology, public health, and pathology.

During the clinical sciences portion, course offerings usually include a survey of the history and the philosophy behind the field of chiropractic healthcare, chiropractic principles and practice, diagnosis, radiology, technique procedures, physiological therapeutics and rehabilitation procedures. Students are trained in chiropractic examination skills and palpation and biomechanics of the extremities.

The clinical services phase of the curriculum is the final aspect of the program where interns at the college care for patients under the supervision and direction of licensed doctors of chiropractic.
