The Board’s Chiropractic Assistant (CA) Program was started approximately 20 years ago when the profession perceived a need for trained chiropractic healthcare assistants for Physical Therapy modalities. Subsequently, a program (which is still currently in place) was developed to educate and train applicants under Board cognizance. Applicants undergo both a didactic and clinical program to fully expose applicants to all phases of physical therapy under the guidance and tutelage of a Board Certified Supervising Chiropractor.
Submit all applications, fees and support documentation, including a comprehensive log signed by the Supervising Chiropractor of the 520 hours of completed training and certificate of completion from the CA school or course
Upon meeting these requirements, an applicant will be issued a Registration by the Board. A Registered CA is a healthcare practitioner in Maryland. Significantly, a Registered CA or CA Trainee may ONLY work under the guidance of a Board Certified Supervising Chiropractor.
Note – for individuals already licensed or registered as a healthcare practitioner, the Board may waive some of the above-listed educational requirements. See, COMAR 10.43.07.C for further information.
