National University of Health Sciences is part of the University Partnership Center at St. Petersburg College (SPC). This innovative campus-sharing program allows us to offer our Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the SPC campus in Florida.
The University Partnership Center (UPC) is an alliance of sixteen colleges offering degree programs to more than a million people in the Pinellas county area. The UPC provides partnerships and educational programs, facilitates interactive instruction, and offers learning resource support services. DC students will attend classes on the SPC campus, but be students of National University. The UPC is the first of its kind in Florida and one of only a handful nationwide.
Our membership in the UPC let's us partner with multiple universities to create exciting integrative medical experiences for our DC students. You'll work together with future health professionals from a wide variety of medical specialties as you:
"My NUHS education as a primary care doctor
has helped me communicate with other healthcare providers and know
how to co-manage all types of conditions. I love the integrative
medicine approach. In the Florida program, you are in regular
communication with nearby nursing and physician assistant students.
We were able to begin great relationships with other healthcare
-- Dr. Eric Brennan (2014 DC graduate)
