Yes – chiropractors are doctors! The state of Florida recognizes chiropractors as physician level providers.
The Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree is given to those who graduate from an accredited chiropractic institution. Schooling is typically around 4 years depending on the acceleration program an individual is enrolled in. The first two years of chiropractic school is very similar to medical school, including cadaver lab anatomy and dissection, biochemistry, physiology, and other basic science courses. The last two years are more clinically focused and patient-facing. The last year in particular, students can opt to do clinical rotations at clinics. Dr. Koser use to be the head of a preceptorship for chiropractic students at Laser Spine Institute and has taught a variety of health related topics.
