Why choose a DVD Program?
You can satisfy 2/3 of your requirements to become a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Sit down at midnight - or 6 a.m. - in your living room, pop in a Sports Injuries DVD, and settle back in your easy chair. Break for dinner? Hit pause, then join your family for a home-cooked meal. (Try hitting pause on a live seminar.) You reduce your travel costs and will have a permanent library of DVD's that you can use as a resource as your sports injuries practice grows.

What about the other 1/3 of the requirements to become eligible for CCSP? That involves 40 hours of live sessions which are offered on campus at Northwestern. (See below for dates and times) - this program will be offered every Fall. The hands-on nature of these topics require each participant to take them live in the classroom.

Please visit www.acbsp.com for more information about applying for the CCSP exam.

Audience: Doctors of chiropractic and T10 chiropractic students (students can earn 12 hours toward their CCSP eligibility before graduating)

DVD Prices: Full Program: $1900 (save $200!) or Per Session: $300


DVD Program Design
In order to apply to sit for the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physician's (ACBSP) CCSP exam you must complete a certificate program from an accredited college such as NWHSU. According to the ACBSP at least forty hours of the 100 hour program must be completed in live sessions (see hands-on program below).

To receive credit for each DVD session, purchase the DVD, watch them, and successfully complete the session exam. The exam is included with the DVD. Fax it to us 952-881-3028, email it to Sue Olson (solson@nwhealth.edu) or mail it back for grading. To pass you need to score 75%. Once you pass the exam you will be awarded 12 hours toward the Sports Injuries Certificate program for each DVD session. Its that easy!

Northwestern will consider transferring hours from other chiropractic colleges sports programs, as long as a majority of your hours are earned through us. Please contact us at 952-885-5446 to discuss your specific situation.
