Why does the chiropractic college run on a semester schedule?
Chiropractic college curricula have become increasingly intense over the past ten years.
The 18-week semester allows greater retention of the material, which will become very
important to the student when it comes time to take National Board Exams.
Students may use the free time in the summer to work and save money, vacation with
family and friends, study for boards, or participate in research projects.
