There are a few different models of chiropractor education,chiropractors must spend greater than 4200 student and teacher contact hours (or up to four years of education) learning and experiencing chiropractor education. Within the 4200 hours, there must be a minimum of 1000 hours of supervised clinical training.
After the extensive schooling and training, the chiropractor degree is granted and the chiropractor must then acquire a license from the Chiropractic Examining Boards. In order to get licensed as a chiropractor, one must complete one year of a clinical internship.
Thereafter, the license is granted upon complete of the state or national board exams and the new chiropractor gets and maintains malpractice insurance.
