Neurology, neurology, neurology!!! If there is one subject that proves what happens in the human body after an adjustment it is this.

Biomechanics, kinesiology, cellular biology, anatomy and physiology, but all under the umbrella of functional neurology. Quantum mechanics? Tensegrity models? Neuropeptides and all the new stuff out there. Current medical and chiropractic education is fifty years behind what is current. (The nbce needs some revison there.) Basic science courses shoud have already been a requirement to get into chiropractic school. This is a doctorate program focused on the care of the human system as a whole.

Question? Why are schools required to hire people with their masters degree in these fields when DC's can do a much better job of relating the material to chiropractic? Did Reggie Gold have his masters degree in anatomy? I had a prof with a doctorate in biochemistry teaching me. Students failed the class right and left and how much of that did we retain and use? Zero

I think that functional medicine is the middle ground of the 2 camps dividing DCs. If the colleges started teaching Functional Medicine with an even stronger emphasis on Neurology, our science would thrive and our philosophy would not be compromised. We would be charting our own course while avoiding the pharma model that some DCs wish to emulate,

I agree fully! We had PhDs come in as replacements for all our DC basic science teachers. Disappointing to say the very least. My Chiro teachers were awesome (for the most part) and were able to relate all science and disease to innate intelligence and interference in one way or another.
