Our Graduate Success Stories
I really like my teachers a lot. They really care and they don't want you to fail. They are there if you need them. If you do fail something, you only have yourself to blame, because the teachers try to help you in every way possible.
Chiropractic technician careers
Chiropractic technicians are relied upon heavily by chiropractors to assist with both the clerical duties of the office and direct patient care. As a graduate of this program, you will be able to seek entry-level employment in this field.
Position titles include:
- Chiropractic Technician
- Chiropractic Assistant
- Chiropractic Office Manager
- Chiropractic Radiographic Technician
In some states, specific certification is required. Herzing University’s chiropractic programs will prepare you to take these necessary certifications.
Chiropractic technicians typically work 40-hours per week with full benefits (such as 401(k), paid vacation, and medical/dental insurance), although part-time and weekend shifts are often available.
The information below reflects aggregated data from all of the Herzing University campuses that have students enrolled in the specified program in the specified time period. The information does not reflect data regarding individual campuses unless only one campus had students to report. The reporting period used to obtain this data was 7/1/2012-6/30/2013. If there were less than 10 graduates in a program, median loan debt and on-time completion data were not disclosed for that program to protect the privacy of those students. Tuition and length may vary by campus location. Ranges could not be input for tuition and length, therefore tuition and length reported are the highest tuition rates and longest program length to encompass all campuses.
