What is the Pre-Chiropractic Program?
Students prepare for entry to a Chiropractic graduate program by obtaining a baccalaureate degree, completing the prerequisite course work for entry into specific programs, and by obtaining a volunteer clinical experience under the direction of a chiropractor. Students may complete undergraduate degrees in any area.
Most programs base their requirements for admission on the prerequisites established by The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE). These standards have been used in the plan of study listed below. Students are encouraged to review prerequisite courses for programs they wish to be qualified for, early in their academic planning to determine if they deviate from these requirements, and to develop a plan of study within the first quarter of entry to Western.
Pre-Chiropractic is not a major at WWU. Examples of Western majors that cover some or all of the prerequisites include: Anthropology/Biology, Community Health, and Kinesiology - Pre-Healthcare Professions.
