Sherman College’s CE department offers a variety of sponsored and co-sponsored events to help with your continuous learning experiences during your chiropractic career. Presenters include Sherman College faculty and other world-class speakers.

Robert Braile, D.C.

The department kicks off the 2008 calendar with Chiropractic Jedi presented by Robert Braile, D.C., February 23-24 on the Sherman College campus. Robert “Bob” Braile has been involved in almost every aspect of chiropractic life having been a successful high volume practitioner, author, instructor and administrator at a chiropractic college and a regular speaker at numerous programs in chiropractic. He has been involved in chiropractic politics on the state, national and international level and served as the eleventh president of the International Chiropractors Association. He is also involved in service to chiropractors through the company he founded, Now You Know, Inc. Don’t miss his 12-hour seminar that will teach you to step outside the current perspective on chiropractic and gain a fresh look at the profession as a unique offering in health care. Attendees will understand subluxation care concepts from a patient perspective, learn tools and technology available to increase patient compliance and much more.

Do you want to become proficient in an upper cervical technique? Then you may be interested in the Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal certification program with Roy Sweat, D.C. After completing 100 hours of basic Atlas Orthogonal training and one dissection seminar, a doctor of chiropractic can start this four-module certification program; module one starts in March each year. While the certification modules are taken at Roy Sweat’s clinic in Georgia, registrations are submitted to Sherman College CE department.

Are you passionate about chiropractic philosophy and want to learn more? Sherman College’s Academy of Chiropractic Philosophers (ACP) will be starting its third class in May at Lyceum 2008. The ACP program is a 10-module, 100-hour scholarly postgraduate course designed to deepen one’s understanding of chiropractic by challenging and inspiring one to learn and think more about chiropractic philosophy and its relationship to the above-down-inside-out worldview. For details about the ACP program, go to or contact Philosophy Department Chair Bill Decken, D.C., at, or call 800-849-8771, ext. 235.

For a wide variety of topics in CE credit, don’t miss Lyceum 2008: Inspire the Fire, May 22-25. This year’s program will offer 20+ hours of CE credit in the philosophy, art and science of chiropractic. In addition, the schedule offers risk management hours in ethics, CPR and South Carolina Rules and Regulations. Top speakers from around the profession will be here to help you become the best you and your practice can be. Don’t forget, Lyceum is not just about CE – it’s also great fun and fellowship for your staff and family. Watch for details on our web site ( and a postcard in your mailbox soon!

Joe Donofrio, D.C.

Bill Decken, D.C., Ron Castellucci, D.C., and Joe Donofrio, D.C., will be traveling to the Northeast in late summer for their presentation Growing Chiropractic with Reckless Simplicity. This 12-hour lecture is designed to use the art, science and philosophy of chiropractic to inspire and teach chiropractors to wholeheartedly promote lifetime family chiropractic care in their communities and practices. The program will focus on three generational types of patients and the unique analysis, adjusting and communication skills to use for each generation.

Continuing education offerings will continue to evolve throughout the year, so I invite you to check the Sherman web site for updates and additions.
