How educated is your doctor in chiropractic?

Have you ever wondered how much education your Doctor of Chiropractic is required to receive compared to a medical doctor? Look at the chart below for graduates of both Chiropractic colleges and medical schools. Doctors of Chiropractic must complete two years of undergraduate studies, in addition to five years of Chiropractic college. This equals the same hours of study that M.D.'s complete. (The below class hours were complied following a review of the curriculum catalogues of 22 Medical schools and 11 Chiropractic colleges and updated by the National Health Federation Bulletin.)
