Fight for Licensure
Chiropractic’s Fight for Licensure by Dr. Neil Rabin is a course that examines the historical damage the American Medical Association has done to the chiropractic profession. This course outlines the history of the fight between the AMA and American Chiropractors and details the resulting court cases in which the AMA was cited as violating the fair-trade agreement. This course details the estimated 15,000 chiropractors who went to jail because of this fight. At the end of this course the student will be better able to understand the journey of chiropractic and chiropractors from founding to present. Dissent in Medicine is a course by Dr. Neil Rabin in which he examines the book by Robert Mendelsohn, M.D. In this course Dr. Rabin reviews and examines Mendelsohn’s confession that his patients were developing diseases that he himself had caused by treatment of their symptoms. He outlines hundreds of cases in which the prescriptions the doctors had been giving caused unresolvable harm to their patients, whereby the doctors essentially blamed the patients for not responding appropriately to the medication or treatment. One instance includes gynecologist/obstetricians who refused themselves to be vaccinated for rubella, which they prescribed to their patients. At the completion of this course students will be able to understand the dichotomy of medicine, the double standard by which M.D.s are taught to hold their patients and themselves in an effort to avoid accountability for the damage they have done. History and Legalities of Animal Chiropractic is a course taught by Dr. Bill Ormston. The goal of this lecture is to inform both professions on the importance of wording in advertising and in communicating with clients. This lecture is updated as often as possible to keep up with legal changes going on in the United States.
