ASCT Curriculum Includes Studies in Business, Clinical and Communications
The curriculum for the Associate of Science in Chiropractic Technology (ASCT) degree program includes both classroom studies, lab work, practical training and an externship, providing you the most comprehensive chiropractic staff training available.
The ASCT curriculum includes business courses designed to train you in the efficient management of all front office duties, including reception/scheduling/recalls, insurance filing, bookkeeping for the practice, marketing, and adhering to governmental safety regulations. It also includes clinical courses that give you skills in taking comprehensive patient case histories, giving physical, orthopedic, and neurological exams, assisting the doctor in chiropractic-specific exams, taking and developing diagnostic X-rays, administering several forms of rehabilitation therapies, and doing patient education in the office and in the community. Courses in chiropractic methods, philosophy, ethics and anatomy and physiology give you a great understanding of chiropractic and the human body. Supporting courses in written and interpersonal communications and psychology provide a foundation for effective communication on the job. A 120-hour externship at a local clinic gives you on-the-job experience even before graduation.
