Introducing the ACA CCP 300-Hour Pediatric Diplomate Education Program

Caring for the pediatric population necessitates extra training and study. The ACA Pediatrics Council has designed 300 hours of pediatric focused education to prepare you to better serve your youngest patients!

In this course, Doctors of Chiropractic will become familiar with the normal developmental milestones of all systems within the pediatric population – from birth to age 16. Treatments, both chiropractic and integrative care, will be discussed to best support our youngest patients.

The program is designed to be a hybrid between online education and in- person instruction. The program consists of 4 sections, broken down into several online units, and two in-person intensives.

The initial cohort begins in September 2023. You can finish the work in as few as 17 months, or take up to 24 months to complete the coursework. Learn on your schedule, and at the pace that fits your needs and lifestyle.

We understand that your time and travel dollars are precious. Therefore, we have created this hybrid program to honor that! Two intensive, in-person learning sessions are planned. This hybrid program is enhanced with Virtual Grand Round sessions, led by instructors and focused on the questions from your learning cohort.
