Why do some professors think that chiropractic students / student doctors / ADULTS aren't mature enough or too impressionable to hear truths about chiropractic in their 1st quarter of school? Are we not in graduate school to learn how to think and form opinions? Who is trying to shelter these young minds as if they're children? Most people in my class are in their late 20s, early 30s, some 40+--were we too impressionable to hear the truth about the chiropractic profession in 1st quarter? Well, whose opinion is the truth anyway? I listened to a number of professors on their soap boxes regarding presidential elections and political views which didn't seem to have a place or point in a physiology, microbiology, or any other lecture. But, I guess it's okay for professors to share their opinions on things, but when we invite first quarter students to attend club meetings to get something that they WON'T find in a lecture hall or in the school curriculum, then suddenly we're asked not to say certain things to them because they're minds can be warped by the crazed ideas of 2nd and 3rd year chiropractic students.
1) I don't like hypocrites
2) Professors need to give students more credit for forming their own opinions instead of only allowing their info to brainwash them into being scared of adjusting people and for referring out patients for anything other than low-back pain
3) I'm more apt to listen to D.C.'s practicing in the field regarding the effectiveness of patient education than some professors who've either NEVER practiced or have been out of practice for over a decade--I think they've lost touch with reality.
