Length of Training/Requirements
To become a licensed chiropractor in Texas, an applicant must graduate from a college that is accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE). The educational requirements call for a minimum of two years of college-level study in an accredited institution of higher learning and graduation from a four-year college of chiropractic that meets the standards of professional education. Before graduating, a chiropractic student must also complete a program in a clinical experience. Upon acceptable completion of the chiropractic college program, the degree of DC (doctor of chiropractic) is awarded.

Licensure/Certification

Once the professional degree is conferred, the doctor of chiropractor must become licensed by the state in which he or she plans to practice. In Texas, the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) licenses chiropractors (www.tbce.state.tx.us). To receive a license, a chiropractor must pass a four-part exam administered by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and a state jurisprudence exam administered by the TBCE. In addition, there are continuing education requirements to maintain licensure.
