Fresh, exciting, and color coordinated! As promised in my previous article, here’s a look at the daily schedule of a Chiropractic student.
I’m currently in trimester 7/12 at Cleveland Chiropractic College. Empty spaces represent breaks with no classes scheduled (we all wish we could do away with them). Below the image, you can find what the abbreviations represent and a little insight on the class. Numbers can be disregarded (room #), and anything with (L) represents a Lab course.
(ENT) Head/Eyes/Ear/Nose/Throat Diagnosis
(PT II) Physiotherapy II – Active care and muscular rehab
(NMS II) Neuromusculoskeletal Diagnosis II – Clinical course over NMS Pathology
(Skeletal Rad II) Skeletal Radiology II – Study of radiographic images and disorders
(CFA) Chiropractic Functional Assessment – Learning functional assessments of patients
(Cardio/Pulm) Cardiopulmonary/Endocrine Diagnosis – Diagnostic studies of the heart, lungs, and endocrine system
Intro to Clinic I – Clinical introduction course. Basically a mock of what it will be like to be in practice. We do assessments, write notes and findings, and adjust as if our patient were a real patient coming to our future office. This prepares us for student clinic (when we gather students as our clients), which leads to outpatient clinic (we gather real clients outside of school). All clinical work is done under the supervision of licensed doctors.
Clinical Lab Diagnosis – Study of lab findings and diagnostics
Thompson Technique – Thompson is a specific style of Chiropractic technique. This course is an elective that I chose to take. Students are required 3 electives of their choice before graduating.
