November 1, 2012 — The International Chiropractors Association (ICA) recently announced that its Council on Upper Cervical Care will be launching the profession’s first diplomate in Upper Cervical Care Procedures in early 2013. Year I classes will be held in Chicago at the Doubletree Hotel O’Hare and the first module is scheduled for the weekend of Jan. 19-20, 2013.
“The Education Committee of the ICA Council on Upper Cervical Care has been hard at work developing the syllabus for this postgraduate program for nearly three years and we are very excited that it is now ready to launch the program,” said Dr. Gary Walsemann, ICA president. “I encourage any doctor who is interested in upper cervical care, or is an upper cervical practitioner to enroll in this program. It will hone their clinical skills and give them an expanded knowledge of upper cervical procedures that will help in their care of patients and improve patient outcomes.”
This 300+ hour postgraduate program is designed to provide DCs with an in-depth education in anatomy, neurology, imaging and research related to upper cervical care and also to teach them, not just one procedure, but several different upper cervical procedures.
The deadline for enrolling in the program is Dec. 17, 2012. For the schedule and breakdown of modules per year, visit the ICA Upper Cervical Council website or call the ICA Upper Cervical Council at 800-423-4690 Ext 554 or 571-765-7554 (direct).
