Followup: Chiropractic school at FSU spawns parody map

To poke fun at Florida State University’s bid for a chiropractic school, an FSU professor has created a new campus map. Opponents of the proposed school say more than 500 faculty members have signed petitions against it.

The map includes parodies of other new schools on campus:

  • Yeti Foundation
  • Bigfoot Institute
  • College of Dowsing
  • Tarot Studies
  • Crop Circle Simulation Labratory

    I can’t for the life of me figure out what the issue is with Chiropractic. Most people complaining about it must simply not understand it.
    The reality is that many chiropractic schools require a Bachelor’s degree before being granted admission, or at least a long list of pre-requisites which are almost identical to the pre-reqs for Med school or Pharmacy school. Then, once you begin the Doctorate of Chiropractic program, it takes 10 trimesters which can be accelerated by not taking summers off and finishing in 3.5 years as opposed to the normal 5 years. This degree is scientific and medical in every way. Classes in the first trimester include: Biochemistry, Gross Anatomy, Pathology, Neurology, Physiology, Biomechanics as well as the Clinical adjustment classes. These are not classes that just anyone could take, much less complete. So the next time you hear Chiropractors are “pseudo doctors”, remember that they actually spend more time in school studying hard sciences than MD’s do

  2. Simply another case of the “Real Thing” establishment of allopathic medicine being the default model for
    health care. Any approach to health that conflicts with the chemical/pharmaceutical model is looked upon by those who are insecure in their understanding of health care with cynicism rather than healthy skepticism. A scientific skeptic will look at the data rather than rely on the old-time religion dogma of our medically-based culture. Just look at the scientific studies performed by independent pier-reviewed journals before judging the effectiveness of chiropractic care.
