The first new doctor of chiropractic program in the United States since 2003 started in 2016 and offered an opportunity to incorporate medical educational innovations and design principles from the experience of those involved in starting new health care programs. Thus, while the goal of the new program was to create a curriculum focused on evidence-based health care practices, it was also possible to use best evidence in the design of the new curriculum. Many innovative and evidence-based curricular elements were incorporated in the new program, including early and sustained clinical experience, case-based clinical education, and integration of basic and clinical sciences.
