Welcome to The Academy of Chiropractic

Trauma Team Qualification

The Academy of Chiropractic is dedicated to clinical excellence and has adopted the strategy of positioning you as a Primary Spine Care Provider and Trauma expert. This is not a marketing or advertising “gimmick.” It is based upon your credentials, backed by Cleveland University-Kansas City, Chiropractic and Health Sciences and, PACE Approved for the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, and many are approved for Graduate Medical Education by the  Accreditation Council for Continued Medical Education in conjunction with the State University of New York at Buffalo, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.This Qualification involves rigorous training, testing and credentialing. Being a Qualified is one avenue to formally validate through academia that you have attained a “recognized” level of education in trauma care and now have a document to verify it. Once you are  “Trauma Qualified” you can post it in your office, through any notification vehicles such as press releases, etc. and on your curriculum vitae. 

In addition, this will open a pathway for you to teach Medical Doctors, AMA Category 1 PRA credits through the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCGME) through the joint providership with the State University of New York at Buffalo, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences as a Graduate Medical Provider. A title that can go on your curriculum vitae and endure the balance of your career. Not to mention that you can now teach MD’s and get them to consider you the first referral first for spine cases based on your credentials and skill-set.
