  Title Profile of preprofessional educational background of students of the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1981 Jun;4(2):73-76
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

With the formation of the Council on Chiropractic Education, the accreditation process was established, and the preprofessional educational requirements were affirmed for students seeking to enter the chiropractic profession. A profile was constructed from an analysis of the educational background of matriculated students in the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. In 1980, 47% of the students had academic degrees prior to matriculation to the college as compared to 23.2% in 1971. The number of female students has increased steadily throughout the years and accounts for 20% of the total student population. By fall 1980, there was an increase of 547% of students in attendance as compared to 1971. Although the minimum academic requirements for admission to the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic has not changed significantly since 1971, the increase in enrollment of more academically qualified students may account for the better acceptance of chiropractic as a quality health-care profession.
