Research

Get Involved

National University offers several options for students who want an even deeper participation in research during their education, or in their future career:

  • Research Assistants -  Apply to work part-time in the Research Department assisting in lab work, data entry, practice-based research or clinical research, depending on project needs.
  • Research Fellowships - Students with previous experience as a research assistant can apply for more responsibility with a 20-hour per week research fellowship.  A research fellow may even be put in charge of various aspects of research projects.
  • Research Residencies - Graduates from the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program can apply for a residency in research.  The residency requires concurrent enrollment in the Master of Public Health degree program through the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Residents work closely with both the faculty in the NUHS Department of Research and the faculty at UIC. Learn more »
  • DC MPH Coordinated Degree Program - This program prepares graduates for careers as high-level administrators, consultants and managers in the public health field, or careers in academic medicine and research. Learn more »
