Chiropractors are licensed in every major state in the United States as a primary healthcare provider, recognized by the United States Department of education, as well as every major state regulatory body. The Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree is equal in hours to the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree, with almost identical programs the first two years. The programs diverge, however, in the second half. During this time the DC program focuses on diet, nutrition and spinal manipulation. The MD program emphasizes the study of pharmacology. Following graduation several national board licensing exams must be passed in order to practice.
