I will be attending the ICAC convention for chiropractors from tomorrow evening through Sunday (23-25 March 2018). I’m very excited. As chiropractors, we have to complete 24 hours of continuing education every year. This is a rather stringent requirement, but I think it reflects that our profession is vigilant in preparing doctors for the present as well as the future. It is a “no chiropractor left behind” model of education. When I was studying at the University of Virginia, students were not referred to as freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or seniors. Rather, we called ourselves first-years, second-years, third-years, and fourth-years, respectively. This is in honor of Thomas Jefferson‘s concept of education, that learning never stops, but is instead marked by the length of time we devote to it. I think Mr. Jefferson would have approved of California’s continuing education requirements for chiropractors. So, cheers to my second year of seminars. Have a good weekend!
