THE DIPLOMATE IN CLINICAL CHIROPRACTIC PEDIATRICS
The Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (DICCP) is a Board Certified credential in pediatrics for doctors of chiropractic. DCs with the DICCP credential are doctors who have completed this post-graduate specialty training co-sponsored by a CCE-accredited chiropractic institution and demonstrated clinical competency in both the written and practical examinations conducted by the International College of Chiropractic Pediatrics, the testing body for the DICCP.
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. Included in the curricula are expanded modules on radiology, nutrition, functional medicine and immunology, sports injuries, orthopedics, neurology, and special needs.
DCs are also instructed on common procedures in associated fields of health care and taught advocacy and co-managment so they develop the expertise to understand and apply appropriate protocols and procedures in all clinical situations. .
