Chiropractic, DC

Program Description

The Doctor of Chiropractic program at Keiser University is a rigorous professional program consisting of ten semesters of study which are completed over 40 months.  It combines traditional lectures with small group learning, weekly conferences and seminars, laboratory and experiential sessions, and clinical training opportunities at a number of sites.  All coursework includes case-based relevancy for chiropractic practice as a portal-of-entry profession dedicated to excellence in spine care.

Throughout the ten semesters of study, a number of cross-cutting themes are embedded within the courses, enabling students to integrate their studies around a clinically relevant framework.  These themes all focus on the role of chiropractic as a conservative clinical approach to spine care, and include chiropractic sports medicine, chiropractic geriatrics, and chiropractic general practice, as well as other cross-cutting themes such as wellness and health maintenance; ethic, professionalism and life-long learning; and, the role of the chiropractor as a team member in mainstream healthcare and public health.  The Doctor of Chiropractic Program emphasizes the promotion of evidence-based health care, inter-professional collaboration and practice, and the highest standards of professional ethics.

The Doctor of Chiropractic degree program at Keiser University is currently engaged in the process of seeking programmatic accreditation by the Council on Chiropractic Education, 8049 North 85th Way, Scottsdale, AZ, 85258-4321, Phone: (480)443-8877, Website: www.cce-usa.org.  During this application process, the program does not hold accredited status with the agency, nor does the agency ensure eventual accreditation.
