The human brain: a storybook of evolution, a palette for the infinite expression of human experience, a thing of mystery and a constant source of wonder. The past two decades have been an incredibly exciting time, in terms of our rapidly growing knowledge of the human brain. The present and future potential for the application of this expanding knowledge base, toward the benefit of human kind is astounding. This is the soul of our curriculum.
The Chiropractic profession, since its beginning, has always had its roots in clinical neurology. This curriculum has been formulated so that those Chiropractors who desire a superior knowledge of neurology might obtain a standard which will enable them to better care for their patients and become referral sources for neurological diagnosis.
Each module has been assigned 15 credit hours. The completion of our 345 hour Diplomate Program in Neurology will culminate in a thorough knowledge of clinical neurology qualifying the Doctor of Chiropractic to serve his/her patients, profession and society in a competent specialized manner. Our program also qualifies chiropractors to be eligible to sit for the diplomate examination of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board.
All Carrick Institute faculty are clinicians who are board certified in a health care discipline. They will introduce the subject material in integrated sections of breadth, depth and application. There will be a correlation of chiropractic technique throughout each module. All areas of breadth, depth, application and technique are interwoven with an emphasis on the art of Chiropractic application. Ours is an immersion course of integrated materials in a problem oriented mode of learning.
Our Graduate School Program is not one which teaches the Chiropractor how to refer difficult neurological cases but one which emphasizes and teaches the treatment of the human nervous system using non pharmaceutical and non surgical techniques. Clinical Neurology will be explored and the breadth, depth and clinical applications will be associated with practicums and contact technique groups for each knowledge area module.
