Our Current Mission 1) To increase knowledge of drug/drug, drug/nutrient, and drug/herbal interactions.
2) To better document and manage drug induced nutritional depletions.
3) To improve knowledge of pharmacokinetics of prescriptive medications patients may be taking and how to monitor them for side effects.
4) To better aid those patients seeking DOT certification who are on medications that may preclude them.
5) To seek appropriate lifestyle, herbal, and nutritional interventions to minimize the patient’s reliance on prescriptive pharmaceuticals.
Our Future Mission: 1. Currently developing post-doctoral curriculum in chiropractic pharmacology, to include: A. Compressed modular baseline coursework of the Diplomate Chiropractic Internist training

C. Mini-residency at accredited institutions for clinical rotations
D. Put on all training through chiropractic college post-graduate departments who wish to participate
2. Expand current ACA By-Laws for the “College” to create a credentialing board to grant a Board Certification in Chiropractic Pharmacology
3. Work with interested parties to provide input pertaining to amending chiropractic medicine practice acts to grant prescriptive authority to chiropractic physicians who are Board Certified Chiropractic Pharmacology.
