What is a chiropractic specialist?
Chiropractic Specialists are licensed chiropractors who have successfully completed the additional requirements in one of five accredited Chiropractic Specialty Programs in Canada. Chiropractic Specialty designations are recognized throughout Canada in the fields of Radiology, Clinical Sciences, Orthopedics, Sports Sciences, and Occupational Health & Physical Rehabilitation.
A Doctor of Chiropractic is required to complete a minimum of seven years of formal undergraduate university and chiropractic college education and must pass both Canadian and Provincial license examinations.
A Chiropractic Specialist must complete an additional three years of postgraduate study in one of the five areas of specialty, and then must pass a series of comprehensive oral, written, and practice examinations. Upon successful completions of all requirements, the Chiropractor is recognized as a Fellow or Chiropractic Specialist. Fellows must maintain ongoing yearly requirements which include one or more of the following: teaching, publishing peer-reviewed studies in approved scientific journals, lecturing at/or attending scientific symposiums.
Chiropractic Specialists are regulated by a number of governing bodies to ensure high standards of clinical competency. The Canadian Federation of Chiropractic Regulatory and Educational Accrediting Boards requires that the educational curriculum for all Specialty Colleges be taught through educational institutions such as the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) with practice standards being overseen by individual Specialty Colleges and Provincial Licensing bodies.
