Obtaining a "Doctor of Chiropractic" (D.C.) degree requires rigorous training.
This includes a pre-chiropractic education that requires either a degree from a four year college or the completion of at least three years (90 of 120 semester credits) of pre-chiropractic study with an intense focus on premedical science courses.
The four year chiropractic curriculum requires more classroom hours (3,065) than a medical curriculum (2,706), and a greater focus on Anatomy-Embryology, Microbiology, Diagnosis, Dermatology, eyes-ears-nose-throat, Neurology, Radiology, and Orthopedics than is required for a M.D.. Additionally the chiropractic education requires an extensive supervised clinical internship.
After receiving a degree from an accredited chiropractic college, all applicants must pass written and oral board exams, at the national and state level, before being granted a license to practice.

Dr. Madeleine Ouellette first realized her dream of becoming a chiropractor at 8 years old after being involved in a sledding accident and injuring her neck. A local chiropractor in Dr. Ouellette's upstate New York hometown was able to help Dr. Ouellette. He educated her family on the, innate intelligence of the body to heal itself. As a result, her entire family have experienced the benefits of regular preventative chiropractic care.
