The education of chiropractors
A study comparing the education provided in medical school to that provided in chiropractic school found that "considerable commonality exists between chiropractic and medical programs." Surprisingly, it was found that more time is spent in basic and clinical sciences in chiropractic education. Not surprisingly, chiropractic education spends more time in nutrition, while medical education spends more time in public health. In addition, little time in medical school is devoted to the study of the neuromusculoskeletal system and related health problems; this is a major focus in chiropractic education.
