Comparisson between chiropractic and medical school

As I prepare for my 8 finals this week, the thought crossed my mind "I wonder if the public truly understands that becoming a chiropractor is not easiest?"  In order to become a chiropractor you go through 3 1/2 years, 14 quarters (straight, no 4 months off for summer).   We take five parts of boards (which are typically right before finals and are 660 questions) and take anywhere from 24-30 credits per quarter.  When you get into upper quarters you are in clinic, which is when you begin to have patients.  This takes more of your time, although this is what your going to school for this is an enjoyment but there are only so many hours in the day.  Along with keeping a healthy lifestyle of exercising, eating well, sleeping and finding time to relax it is a tough 3 1/2 years although very worth it in the end.  Here is a comparison chart of the amount of hours in Medical School and in Chiropractic.

Pretty Interesting I think! :)
