Chiropractic School in Maryland - MD
Those wishing to become a practicing doctor of chiropractic medicine in Maryland will need to receive two degrees: a bachelor degree and a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree. The bachelor’s degree will take four years to complete, and may be in any field; however, something health or science related is recommended to make further study more relevant. It must be from an accredited college, and may have been received before, during, or after your study at chiropractic college. The chiropractic school in Maryland that you choose must be one of the 14 approved by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE).
During your chiropractic school training, you will also need to take a clinical experience/externship. The state’s "chiropractor extern program" is a two-semester long clinic-based program that students participate in. While in this program externs work under the watchful supervision of a licensed chiropractor that has demonstrated competency before the Board so as to serve as a preceptor. The program will operate in a facility where chiropractic services have been approved by the Maryland Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Here, you will get the opportunity to put the knowledge you have received in the classroom to the test in a practical setting.
