Statement of Purpose

It is the purpose of this Board to approve only those schools teaching the schedule of minimum educational requirements as defined by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) Standards. These schools will also be evaluated for minimum educational requirements in minor surgery, proctology and physiotherapy (ORS 684.050(4)), subjects which are not required by CCE standards. This Board may also approve those programs that are mutually recognized and endorsed by CCE through membership in the Councils on Chiropractic Education International, on a case-by-case basis.

(1) 120 hours is required in physiotherapy. Any chiropractic physician also licensed as a physical therapist is exempt from this requirement.

(2) 36 hours (survey course) is required in minor surgery/proctology (in addition to the standard courses of physical examination, emergency/first aid, histology etc.).

(3) Applicants for licensure in Oregon who have graduated from schools which do not meet the requirements for physiotherapy, minor surgery, or proctology must provide evidence of sufficient hours in these subjects from any approved CCE school (undergraduate or post-graduate educational program).
