Report on Chiropractors Licensed in Washington; Information on Education and Training Programs.
Senters, Jo; Cohen, Lynn
The purpose of this study was to determine profile characteristics of chiropractors licensed in the state of Washington. The results are based upon information gathered through a questionnaire which was sent to all chiropractors licensed in the state as of March 30, 1970. The response rate to the questionnaire was 83 0/0. The findings were that a professional chiropractor was most likely to be in practice in King County, had not been employed full-time in an occupation previous to chiropractic, and was engaged in direct patient care and administration work from 30 to 39 hours a seek. Other typical background characteristics were that he was of male sex, was under 45, had obtained his license through reciprocity in another state, had participated in one or more short-term courses or workshops, and had taken no academic coursework as part of his continuing education.
