Make the Grade
Bring the entire office and have your practice at “gold star” performance Monday morning! We offer doctors of chiropractic 20 hours of license renewal credit, including Risk Management (as well as the Florida Laws & Rules/Medical Errors/Ethics and Recordkeeping/Documentation & Coding hours required for your Florida renewal). Clinical hours are approved in Florida and some 47 other states. CAs and CCPAs can also attend select sessions. We have entire tracks specifically designed for the “new doctor,” front office CA and back office CA, as well as one designed by the International Academy of Clinical Neurology for those wishing to get their neurology diplomate CE; and we’re offering LMT options: six hours of required C.E. or 12 hands-on hours—or attend both tracks for 18 total hours! Add to that 12 C.E. hours for CRTs, courses for LAcs/APs/DOMs, and the RCA Training Program, and we’ve got everyone covered!

These courses get back to the basics and will help your office Staff develop the Patient/Doctor relationship needed to grow a recession proof Practice.” Read more…

In response to member requests, the FCA has explored the offering of basic clinical staff training that would provide a sound foundation for CA’s to render supervised patient care and excel as a member of the staff team in a chiropractic office and would provide proof of such training in the form of a certificate of completion from an accredited chiropractic college.
