CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE

Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine are involved in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects these disorders have on general health. Chiropractors use manual manipulation of joints and soft tissues to improve patient function and overall health. This concentration is designed for transfer to the New York Chiropractic College. Admission to NYCC requires a total of 90 credits. The 90 credits must include the Core Course Entrance Requirement credits from the 64 credits listed below; the remaining 26 credits may be obtained at Cayuga or another academic institution. NYCC typically will accept the 26 remaining credits from a wide range of courses. The Doctor of Chiropractic degree at NYCC requires a minimum of ten 15-week trimesters of full-time resident study, including a clinical internship. Students are admitted to NYCC on a Fall rotation.
