The Board of Chiropractic Examination and Registration (BCER) is expected to set
The Board of Chiropractic Examination and Registration (BCER) is expected to set the minimum training requirement for chiropractors in the use of accupuncture at 200 hours, compared with 2,600 hours recommended by the World Health Organization for "non-phyicians." The 200- hour requirement has drawn opposition from accupuncturists, who claimed that the law allowing the BCER to set the standard was forced through the Legislature by the lobbying clout of chiropractors. Moshe Myerowitz, a Bangor chiropractor involved in drafting the standard, charges the acupuncturists with being sore losers, afraid of competition.
