Chiropractic Principles 
This course will discuss the basic premises of chiropractic including a brief history, healthcare integration, general chiropractic treatment, and introduction to common conditions. 

Patient History 
Required for CTs who take any patient history outside the presence of the chiropractor. The subjective portion of the S.O.A.P. note format (Subjective, Objective, Assessment and Plan) will be taught. This method is part of a system or organizing the patient record called the "promlem oriented record." The SOAP format is the most widely used type of documentation in the health care industry. Please bring 2 copies of the following office forms if you use them:

  • Patient Intake Form
  • History/Exam Form
  • Daily Note Form
  • Update Form

Preliminary Physical Examinations/Vital Signs

Includes obtaining vital signs -- patient's height, weight, temperature, blood pressure, and noting other physical characteristics that do not require the use of instruments or more extensive diagnostic procedures. Attendees should bring a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope.

Musculoskeletal Anatomy 
This course will introduce the student to basic musculoskeletal anatomy so that they can identify common landmarks, regions, and musculature treated within a chiropractic office.
