THE  DIPLOMATE IN CLINICAL CHIROPRACTIC PEDIATRICS

The Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (DICCP) is a Board Certified credential in pediatrics for doctors of chiropractic administered by the ICA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics. Doctors with the DICCP credential are doctors who have completed this post-graduate specialty training co-sponsored by a CCE-accredited chiropractic institution and demonstrated competency in both the written and oral examinations conducted by the International College of Chiropractic Pediatrics, the testing body for the DICCP.

The program is currently co-sponsored by Palmer College of Chiropractic and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. 

The DICCP is a 360+ classroom hour course.  All  modules are structured and well-defined. The subject areas covered in the syllabus include all aspects of pediatrics ---from pre-natal, pregnancy, birth, infancy to adolescence. Each stage of pregnancy and of a child’s development are covered in-depth so the practicing doctor of chiropractic acquires greater skills and competencies in a wide range of evaluative, diagnostic and assessment procedures, as well as corrective and adjustment skills for different stages of development as well as different needs. Also included in the curricula are expanded modules on radiology, nutrition, functional medicine and immunology, sports injuries, orthopedics, neurology, and special needs.

The syllabus is broad-based and comprehensive in content so the doctor of chiropractic develops the expertise to understand and apply appropriate clinical protocols in all situations and provides care that is safe, appropriate and always of a high professional standard.

Writing of research projects/papers are mandatory.

Candidates must complete the full 3-year program, all assignments/projects, and pass the final internal exam to be eligible to sit for the DICCP Board Examination.  The Board examination is conducted once a year by the International College of Chiropractic Pediatrics, the Testing Body for the DICCP and consists of two parts -- written and oral. Testing is conducted by several examiners. .

Ongoing CE Requirements: Diplomates must complete 24 hours of continuing education in chiropractic pediatrics every three years in order to maintain their diplomate status. They must also attend at least one Annual Conference/Symposium presented by the ICA Pediatrics Council every three years.

Fellowship: Diplomates who have been in practice for a certain number of years, present and publish research papers, teach at the postgraduate level, and contribute in any significant way to advancing chiropractic care for children and improving patient care, may achieve the distinction of a Fellow in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (FICCP).  Fellowship is not automatic and is decided by a panel of Fellows on the Board. Fellows must be members of the Pediatrics Council and the ICA.
