How to Become a Chiropractor in Arkansas

If becoming a chiropractor in Arkansas sounds like a career move that interests you, there are many opportunities available. But first, Arkansas state regulations will require you to meet a number of specific educational and training standards.

To receive an Arkansas chiropractic license, you must have completed at least 60 undergraduate credits with a C average, at least half of which must be in science courses like biology, chemistry, and math. You must also have a degree from an accredited chiropractic school, comprising at least 4400 50-minute resident class hours (four years of nine academic months), including clinical training experience, and 120 classroom hours of physiological therapeutics.

If you have these qualifications, you’ll need to take an examination, covering subjects such as physical and clinical diagnosis as well as manipulative therapies. Once you’ve passed this test, you’ll be ready to start practicing as a licensed chiropractor.

Even after you’ve begun to practice chiropractic treatment, whether at a hospital like Baptist Health Medical Center or your own practice, you’ll need to take twenty-four hours of continuing education courses at an approved institution or program each year in order to renew your Arkansas license.

Becoming a chiropractor in Arkansas takes a long time, but the payoff is an amazing career in an expanding field. If it sounds right for you, the first step is finding the right school.
