From The Desk of Dr. Mike Tannenbaum, D.C. of Ann Arbor, Michigan

Here are the college science courses required to have been completed by applicants to chiropractic schools in order for the applicant to be considered for admission to the schools doctor of chiropractic program. This list is from my recollection and it is possible that the chiropractic schools requirements differ a bit from my list. The courses are as follows:

Two semesters of each inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physics.

One semester each of anatomy physiology, zoology, botany, and biology

My understanding is the science courses required to get into chiropractic college are the same needed to get into medical college. With this in mind, let's compare the credit hours required to get a chiropractic degree vs. a medical degree.
