The program will begin in July 2014 and provide advanced clinical training in complex case management, allowing recent graduates to  increase their scope and depth of clinical knowledge, experience and acumen. Residents will be mentored by senior VA doctors of chiropractic who are leaders in integrated chiropractic practice.These clinicians will share their expertise in patient care, academics and research to provide a robust educational experience.
 
"This is a win-win for the American veterans who are desperately in need of the services provided by doctors for chiropractic for their often complex neuromusculoskeletal ailments and for the DCs who will grow from their VA residency experiences," said ACA President Keith Overland, DC. "The hospital-based training program will expand participants' ability to collaborate with other health care professionals and prepare residents for future positions with VA, other health care systems or in academic settings."
 
Detailed application information will be provided by each program later in January 2014. Selection will be a competitive process considering factors such as chiropractic college transcripts,additional professional experiences,letters of recommendation, telephoneand/or on-siteinterviews.
 
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), based in Arlington, VA, is the largest professional association in the United States advocating for more than 130,000 doctors of chiropractic (DCs), chiropractic assistants (CAs) and chiropractic students.
