If you’re interested in helping patients of car accidents, those in chronic pain and people with genetic issues, you’ll enjoy the preparation for chiropractic school. Although it's not its own major, the pre-chiropractic curriculum will give you a solid base of targeted knowledge to equip yourself for further education in chiropractic school.
By following liberal arts curriculum steeped in the natural and physical sciences, you'll gain a greater insight into the chiropractic field. An academic advisor within the UND College of Arts & Sciences will help to tailor your plan of study to your interests, but most chiropractic schools require the following courses for admittance:
- General Biology
- Organic Chemistry
- English Composition
- College Algebra
As the old adage goes, “Experience is the best teacher.” The same goes for academics — internships and other experiential learning opportunities are beneficial for both the classroom and your résumé. Chiropractic schools require that students obtain hundreds of hours of first-hand exposure to the profession. You’ll work with faculty members or an advisor to explore your options for satisfying this requirement.
With a non-invasive method of treatment, chiropractics is becoming a more popular treatment method for patients. The employment rate is expected to increase much faster than other occupations. Employment of chiropractors is expected to increase by 28 percent from 2010 to 2020.
