In Canada, two post-secondary institutions offer four year Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree programs:
- the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto
- the Universite du Quebec in Trois Rivieres (instruction in French).
The minimum entrance requirement is successful completion of at least three years of post-secondary education. Most entrants have a bachelor’s degree in arts or science (Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science).
Admission to CMCC requires a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.5 in 90 credits of undergraduate study. There are no specific course requirements but potential applicants are encouraged to study kinesiology, biology, psychology, anatomy, physical education and chemistry. Chiropractic colleges in the United States accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) also are recognized by the College of Chiropractors of Alberta.
You may complete either one or two years of this program at GPRC, and then transfer to the University of Alberta, or the university of your choice, for the remainder.
