Life College of Chiropractic West has developed a three-year course of study for DCs who seek diplomate status with the Council on Applied Chiropractic Science (CACS) of the International Chiropractors Association, according to Dr.
The course will provide the chiropractor with an opportunity to acquire greater skills and competencies in a wide range of evaluative, diagnostic, assessment, rehabilitative, and adjustive procedures. It will also provide greater understanding of emerging technologies and clinical protocol.
Ten courses will be offered each year. Each component provides 12 hours of relicensure credit.
"The basic approach of subluxation-oriented chiropractic has been unchanged for years," said Dr. Clum. "What has changed is the information available to better understand the subluxation paradigm, the technology to better visualize and interpret the effects of subluxation and correction, and refinement of how, when, and where to apply an adjustment."
The first year of coursework will be provided in association with the Chiropractic Society of Washington and United Chiropractors of Washington. The initial program will be held on September 15-16 in Seattle.
Faculty for the first year includes Malik Slosberg, D.C.; Charles "Skip" Lantz, D.C., Ph.D.; and Christopher Kent, D.C.
The program is offered through Life West's Division of Continuing Education.
