Before entering into a chiropractic college, one must complete a minimum of 2 years of undergraduate study, and many colleges require a four-year undergraduate science degree. Training in chiropractic care involves extensive study of neuromusculoskeletal diagnosis and treatment. The course of study focuses on three areas:
1. Basic training in biological and health sciences.
2. Specialized training in chiropractic theory, practice, technique, diagnosis, and application.
3. Extensive clinical and practice training with patients.
