Chiropractors have been excluded from postgraduate training in medical hospitals since the time such programs were mandated following World War II. Recently, a chiropractic residency program has been established at Lindell Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. This paper briefly describes the development of this program and the functions carried out by the chiropractic resident in the hospital environment. It then attempts to define a future direction for such residency programs.
