Program Information

Practicing and experienced chiropractors looking to expand their knowledge can find continuing education classes in chiropractic medicine online. These courses are usually available at any time of day and may be offered as pre-recorded lectures or interactive web seminars. Because some states may not accept online continuing education courses for credit, students should confirm state licensure eligibility and renewal requirements before registering. Students typically need to submit continuing education hours to their state's board of chiropractic medicine following successful completion of courses.

Chiropractors who are looking to earn continuing education credits can find courses online that increase their expertise in both treatment and business-related topics.
