Moraine Park Technical College will offer a Chiropractic Assistant radiography delegation course at its Beaver Dam campus in May and June.


This course introduces radiological information and skills that are required for chiropractic assistants to take X-rays in the chiropractic health setting. Students will complete 48 hours of classroom instruction, plus 52 hours of radiography-related on-the-job experience under the supervision of a chiropractor.
