Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician Program

Sports certified doctors of chiropractic typically enjoy a more robust annual income than their non-sports certified counterparts. Broaden your expertise and your patient base while maximizing your educational investment with the 2019 CCSP Program brought to you by DConline and Cleveland University-Kansas City.

Dr. William Moreau, is vice president of sports medicine at the United States Olympic Committee and coordinates the CCSP program in conjunction with CUKC.

“Those who do choose to engage in obtaining a certificate of additional qualification in sports chiropractic from the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians are setting themselves apart in the field of chiropractic,” Moreau said. “Our careers should embrace lifelong learning, and it makes sense to focus this learning on the hottest area of specialty in the field – sports chiropractic.”

Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician Program Details

The CCSP® certification requires post-graduate education in chiropractic sports medicine or a closely related discipline. Licensed doctors of chiropractic who satisfy one of the following, and are able to provide official documentation demonstrating such, are eligible to take the CCSP examination:

  • Completed a minimum of 100 hours of postgraduate education in the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physicians® program from an accredited chiropractic college.
  • Possess a current Athletic Trainer (ATC) Certification
  • Completed a Master of Science (MS) program in exercise and sport science or equivalent program from an accredited college
  • Completed the first year of a sports medicine residency program with an accredited college

All registered doctors will have until June 30, 2020 to complete online hours. Each registrant will receive a unique login and password to access and complete coursework at their own pace until the deadline.

All candidates must have completed a post-graduate level hands-on emergency procedures course and a healthcare-provider level CPR certification course with a hands-on component as part of their program of study or in addition to their program. Online CPR courses that do not include a live, practical component are not acceptable. Candidates must provide documentation of successful completion of both courses prior to sitting for the exam. The CPR certification must be valid on the exam date.

Once these requirements are met the doctor may submit an application to the ACBSP™ national office to take the CCSP written exam. The exam consists of 250 multiple-choice questions and is administered in two parts on the same day. The entire exam including the instruction period and mid-exam break is typically scheduled for a five-hour period on a weekend day.
