College of Chiropractic Intern’s Clinic Handbook

15.3 Preparing for T10

Begin the process of looking for an Externship early. Clinical Education needs time to send the application, receive it, credential the doctor, and notify the state board. Certain states have deadlines to meet for contracts (e.g. AZ, MT, SD, WI, etc), and applications to complete (e.g. AZ, SD, MT, WI, and others ).

Northwestern requires of DCs the following regardless of the criteria in each specific state:

  • MN – 3 years licensed and in practice in the state of Minnesota.
  • All other states and countries – 5 years licensed and in practice for at least five consecutive years with the last three years in the current jurisdiction unless otherwise mandated by the State Board.
