Advanced Standing Doctoral Program

Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) for Physicians

D'Youville's Advanced Standing Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) program prepares physicians trained in India to become Doctors of Chiropractic.

In the two-year professional program, you'll develop the knowledge, skills, values and behaviors necessary to become a primary care chiropractic physician, capable of responding to the changing demands of society in an ever-evolving, integrative healthcare system.
