Present Duties

The Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners (OBCE) was formed in 1915 to serve the public, regulate the practice of chiropractic, promote quality, and ensure competent and ethical health care. The seven member board is comprised of five chiropractic physicians and two public members who are appointed by the governor to three-year terms.


The board is supported by a peer review committee of seven chiropractic physicians and a staff of six. In addition, the OBCE relies on public stakeholders to help guide its decision-making and policy formation.


As of July 2014, the board licenses 1,963 chiropractic physicians (1,611 active and 352 inactive) and 1,561 certified chiropractic assistants. The board’s programs include application, examination, continuing education, public information and investigation of complaints. If violations are found, the board issues disciplinary actions and/or rehabilitation plans to meet competency standards.
