Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists
A DABCI degree (Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists) requires doctors to attend and complete a 300 hour post doctorate course, pass a national certification examination and requires 12 hours of continuing education in advanced coursework each year. The DABCI program is recognized by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and certified by the American board of Chiropractic Internists (ABCI). The DABCI program is also one of 6 programs recognized and approved by the American Board of Chiropractic Specialties (ABCS). Seminars within the DABCI programs are accepted for CEU's required for recertification by the the following boards.
This 300 hour program consisting of 26 weekend courses of 12 hours each, can be taken in any sequence. Classes are available live in the classroom on location, but may be attended in any location where the same topic is offered.
Chiropractic physicians with a DABCI post doctoral certification utilize conventional medical diagnostics, specialized functional testing, and holistic medicine diagnostic evaluations. DABCI physicians routinely employ methods such as blood laboratory studies, urinalyses, electrocardiograms, vascular doppler ultrasound, spirometry, DEXA bone density testing, salivary assay hormonal and neurotransmitter tests, IgG food allergy testing, diagnostic imaging to include x-ray, CT, MRI, comprehensive gastrointestinal stool analyses, and many other diagnostic tools. A DABCI uses therapeutic methods which emphasize conservative and minimally invasive approaches and minimize risk to the patient. Diplomates in diagnosis and internal disorders use treatments such as clinical nutrition, dietetics, exercise, vitamin and mineral supplementation, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, acupuncture, natural hormone replacement, and pharmacologic counseling. Many conditions and disease states can be resolved by utilizing these natural methods. The Council on Diagnosis of Internal Disorders promotes our physicians as uniquely qualified to provide this type of comprehensive natural medical care.
Continuing education credits are provided through National University of Health Sciences-NUHS.
After completing this 300 hour program you are eligible to sit for the DABCI board exam.
