Q. What factors should I consider when selecting a resource for continuing education courses?
A. When selecting a resource for Doctor of Chiropractic continuing education (CE) courses, it’s essential to consider several factors to ensure the courses meet your needs, comply with regulatory requirements, and contribute to your professional development. Here are key factors to consider:

  • Accreditation and Approval: Choose courses from accredited institutions or providers recognized by your state board or the national accrediting body. Accreditation ensures the quality and relevance of the CE program and its compliance with regulatory standards​.
  • Relevance to Practice: Look for courses directly relevant to your practice emphasis or that will expand your skills in areas you wish to grow. Specializations such as sports chiropractic, pediatric care, or integrative medicine can offer pathways to diversify your practice​.
  • Learning Format: Decide whether you prefer online or in-person learning. Today’s online courses and videos from CE seminars and presentations offer flexibility and convenience, allowing you to learn at your own pace. You may also want to discover in-person seminars and workshops because they provide valuable hands-on experience, direct interaction with instructors, and superb opportunities to network with other doctors and chiropractic experts.
  • Course Content and Quality: Evaluate the course content to ensure it covers current and comprehensive information that will genuinely enhance your practice. High-quality courses often include practical applications, case studies, and the latest research findings.
  • State or Country-Specific Requirements: Be aware of the specific CE requirements for chiropractors in your state or country, as these can vary significantly. For example, some states may require a certain number of hours in ethics, risk management, or specific treatment modalities​.
  • Cost and Financial Aid: Consider the cost of the courses and any available financial aid options, scholarships, or employer support. CE is an investment in your professional development, so it’s important to budget for it accordingly.
  • Instructor Expertise: Look into the qualifications and experience of the instructors. Well-respected and experienced instructors can provide valuable insights and knowledge beyond what you can find in textbooks or online resources.
  • Networking Opportunities: In-person seminars and workshops can offer networking opportunities with peers and industry leaders. These connections can be invaluable for professional growth, collaboration, and staying informed about industry trends.
  • Technology and Resources: For online courses, assess the technology used and the resources provided. Your choice in an online platform should be user-friendly and offer comprehensive resources, including reading materials, videos, and forums for discussion.
  • Feedback and Reviews: Look for feedback or reviews from past participants to gauge the effectiveness and quality of the CE courses. Positive feedback from peers can be a strong indicator of a course’s value.
