A December 14th 2011 article in the Chronicle of Higher Education describes the regrettable turmoil within the chiropractic ranks that threatens to severely damage the education process and the entire profession. Putting the needs of the patient first appears to be lost in the wake of professional politics.  After hearings the federal panel gives the Council on Chiropractic Education and the profession a year to “clean up its act.”

Original articles from The Chronicle of Higher Education written by Eric Kelderman can be found here and here.


From the article "Dispute Over Chiropractic Trends Creates an Accreditation Controversy" written by Eric Kelderman December 14, 2011:

"But the chiropractic-education council has come under verbal fire from a group charging that the accreditor is being controlled by a "cartel" of "testing companies, licensing boards, state and national trade organizations, and companies doing business within the profession."  An online petition opposing the renewal has gotten nearly 3,400 signatures. At least 17 people have signed up to make comments on the council's recognition at the meeting."

And from the article "Chiropractic Accreditor Gets Extra Scrutiny From Federal Panel" written by Eric Kelderman December 15, 2011:

"After four hours of public comments and deliberations, the federal panel that advises the education secretary on accreditation issues approved a standard motion recommending to continue a chiropractic-program accreditor's authority if it can clean up its act within a year. And the panel added a single sentence that will require the agency to do a better job of dealing with its constituents."
