Pre-Chiropractic

按摩师是做什么的?

脊医主要集中在脊柱, 缓解由脊柱困难引起的疼痛, 但他们也建立了一个包括营养在内的更广泛的医疗保健模式, 锻炼, 的姿势, 压力管理, 体重管理, 还有各种生活方式咨询. The philosophy of chiropractic practitioners is the promotion of general health without the use of drugs or surgery. They believe that the body can heal itself 和 that the body should be treated as a whole - health is an expression of spiritual, 心理, 物理, 和环境因素. 脊椎指压治疗师不是治疗严重疾病或创伤的首选医师. 作为一个结果, 需要脊医的紧急电话很少, 灵活的工作时间允许个人生活.

How long will it take to obtain a chiropractic degree, 和 what is the curriculum like?

获得脊椎按摩医学学位需要四年时间. 在典型的脊椎按摩课程中, 头两年花在基础科学——大体解剖学上, 神经科学, 组织学, 生物化学, 等. 在第三和第四年, 学生们完成临床轮转,以便在监督下与患者进行实际操作.

大部分脊医学校须修读以下课程方可入学:

  • 1年普通生物(170和180)
  • 1年普通化学(121和162)
  • 1年有机化学(201和302)
  • 1年物理(201和202或280)
  • 1年英语(101和另一门英语A课程)
  • 1个学期的心理学(PSYC 101)
  • 5个学期的社会科学或人文学科(威登堡S, A,或R课程)

而以上的先决条件适用于大多数脊椎按摩学校, 一些学校增加了自己的要求. Be sure to check the schools that you are interested in applying to for other required coursework, 如:

  • 生物化学1学期

如果我对脊椎按摩医学感兴趣,我应该在威腾堡学什么专业呢?

你可以选择20多个专业中的任何一个 as long as you take the prerequisite courses required by the schools to which you apply. 就脊椎按摩学校而言, they do not put much emphasis on whether you graduate with a Bachelor of 艺术 or a Bachelor of Science degree – that choice is yours. Look at the prerequisite requirements for the schools that you are interested in 和 the degree requirements for your major to determine which degree is the best match for you.

我在申请脊椎按摩学校时,是否需要有与医学相关的时间?

No. Most chiropractic programs do not have specific minimum requirements for number of paid or volunteer hours spent with a chiropractor. 然而, gaining h和s-on experience prior to applying gives you more confidence in your career decision, 并展示你对职业的承诺.

我在威登堡的时候参加课外活动重要吗?

是的. While the schools do not require a specific number of extracurricular activities or leadership positions, 他们在你的申请材料中都要找. They consider how many years you spent with each organization 和 how involved you appear to be with each one (e.g.,领导角色). The schools use your experiences in this area to better underst和 your ability to socially interact with others, 你的领导潜能, 还有你的时间管理技能. They seek to recruit well-rounded individuals who can successfully balance a heavy academic load with medically related experience 和 extracurricular activities. 如果成功, they infer that you will rise to the challenge of their academic program when you have fewer non-academic commitments.

我怎样才能找到最适合我的脊椎按摩计划?

早点出发. Identify 3-5 schools of potential interest before registering for classes in the spring of your SOPHOMORE YEAR. 上面列出的课程在许多脊椎推拿学校都是常见的, 但是对你感兴趣的学校可能有额外的要求. It is best to know about those requirements while you still have room in your schedule to fulfill them.

做研究. 去学校的网站,制作一个必修课表, 他们的平均绩点, 以及在医疗机构工作的小时数(如果有的话). These will give you some idea of where you need to be academically when you graduate from Wittenberg, 和 the courses you need to take inside your major 和 in the general education program to make you a good c和idate for that particular set of schools. 学校会同时考虑你的理科GPA和累计GPA, so it is not wise to prioritize your grades in science courses over those taken for your general education requirements.

总结你的发现. Create a sample table of school information assuming all require general biology 和 general chemistry. Add a column for each different course as you encounter them as prerequisites at your schools of interest.

评估你的发现. Match your cumulative GPA with the averages for the last incoming class at each school. Read all web pages for hospitals/medical centers that have a specialty that interests you. Look for data that reports on the percentage of students that have passed the board exams.

应用 to the school in the state where your parents are living 和 paying taxes if there is one. 你有最好的机会进入那个州的公立学校, 和 the tuition at your in-state school is much less than at a private or out-of-state public school. 因为美国只有17所脊椎按摩学校, 学校和地理位置的选择是有限的. 考虑申请2到4所学校.

我该如何及何时申请脊医学校?

  • 应用 directly to the chiropractic schools of your choice by the end of October of your senior year if you intend to go directly from Wittenberg to chiropractic school.
  • 通常, they will require official transcripts 和 three letters of evaluation be sent on your behalf. It is best to have at least one chiropractor 和 one faculty member send letters to the chiropractic school, 但一定要遵循每个学校提供的指导.
  • 大多数脊椎按摩学校不要求MCAT, GRE等. 申请进入他们的项目.
  • 一些脊椎按摩学校不要求校园面试. 然而, it is in your best interest to arrange a visit with the chiropractic schools that you are interested in to better evaluate their faculty, 设施, 和学生一起来决定哪些学校适合你.
  • Wait for the results of your application after the interview (if required) to find out if you have been accepted, 等待上市, 或者被那个学校拒绝.
  • You are at a disadvantage if you submit your materials late in the cycle - applications are often considered as they arrive, 在截止日期前没有. 及时完成并发送材料.

我在申请时是否需要通过卫生预备专业委员会?

No. Chiropractic schools do not require their applicants to have a composite letter of evaluation that is generated by Wittenberg's Pre-Health Professions Committee. 而不是, you will usually be required to have three letters of evaluation submitted directly to the schools on your behalf. 选择评估者时, 考虑询问至少一名脊椎按摩师和一名教职员工, 但是一定要按照你申请的每个学校的具体说明去做.

我需要通过服务来协调我的应用程序吗?

No. 现时并无中央申请服务供申请脊医学校. You must request 和 fill out separate applications for each chiropractic school to which you apply.

对于准备一份有吸引力的申请,你有什么建议吗?

填写这些专业学校的申请表可能是困难和乏味的, 但需要你尽最大努力. 必须填写申请表 完全 正确 否则就会归还给你. Having your application returned for further information delays contact with the admissions offices of your target schools. 特别要注意要求的一页个人陈述. 有人评估过你的文章吗.e. 就业中心工作人员、写作中心等.). 记住,你是在向招生委员会推销自己. 无关的细节, 句子和段落结构不佳, 不正确的语法, 拼写错误, 印刷错误, 等. 偏离你希望创造的理想候选人的形象.
