CT Program meets Iowa Board of Chiropractic rules

Palmer College of Chiropractic’s Department of Undergraduate Studies has announced that the Associate of Science in Chiropractic Technology (A.S.C.T.) degree program has been recognized as meeting new Iowa physiotherapy legislative requirements. Per the Iowa Board of Chiropractic state requirement 645-43.12(2), effective July 1, 2009, chiropractors are required to keep on file proof of staff completion of requirements in training of active and passive physiotherapy.

Per this new regulation, Palmer College alumni of the A.S.C.T. program and Chiropractic Clinical Assistant (CCA) certificate holders have differing levels of competency depending on when they attended Palmer. Under the new requirements, chiropractic technologists who attended Palmer may meet the full requirements for passive and active instruction, and passive and active clinical experience.

To find out which requirements you or your staff person meet and to obtain written certification, please have the Palmer CT/CCA alumnus contact Annette VenHorst, Undergraduate Registrar, at (563) 884-5867 or
