Pre-Chiropractic Program
“Chiropractic medicine focuses on the relationship between the body’s main structures – the skeleton, the muscles and the nerves – and the
patient’s health. Chiropractors believe that interference with these systems can impair normal functioning, cause pain and lower resistance to
disease. They are most well known for the hands-on technique they practice to adjust imbalances in the patient's skeletal system, particularly
the spine. They do not prescribe drugs or perform surgical procedures, although they do refer patients for these services if they are medically
indicated.” Taken from http://explorehealthcareers.org/en/Field/26/Chiropractic_Medicine.
Admission to a Chiropractic program requires at least three years of undergraduate study, although most programs require a four-year
Bachelor’s degree. Successful completion of a Chiropractic program leads to a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
At MTSU, students can choose to complete a four-year degree in a science related discipline such as Biology or Chemistry. We also offer
3+3 programs in affiliation with Life University, Logan University, and Sherman College of Chiropractic. The three-year program outlined
below coupled with one year of successful work in chiropractic school satisfies course requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Health
Science from MTSU.
