The Sherman College graduate program in chiropractic philosophy is designed for those seeking to deepen their understanding of chiropractic. The one-year course will challenge and inspire you to learn and think more than ever about chiropractic philosophy and its relationship to the above-down-inside-out world view.
The world has changed considerably in the past 100 years.
- Study the validity of the 33 principles even with many developments in science and technology and examine them for relevance.
- Re-visit the reasoning process and compare mechanistic and vitalistic thought.
- Evaluate their relevance and application as you listen, question and synthesize current thinking in biology, chiropractic research, adaptability, ethics and professional identity in the practical application of chiropractic philosophy.
