MSACP graduate, Dr. Dean Greenwood, is a practicing chiropractic physician in Vancouver, British Columbia. He has been managing a successful practice for 30 years and credits NUHS for helping him grow in his profession.

“The MSACP program was the best learning experience I’ve had since chiropractic college, as well as in my 30 years of professional experience. The diverse training in the program covered a wide variety of topics and was geared specifically toward post-professional degree students. What helped me the most was the emphasis in understanding differential diagnoses and co-managing complex patient conditions.”

Dr. Evangelia Skokos, also a graduate of the program, is an attending clinician and sees patients in faculty practice at National University’s Whole Health Center. She said the rigor and dimension of the program allowed her to gain what felt like years of experience.

“The program helped me understand different patient diagnoses through lab work while also co-managing complex patient conditions. In addition, it allowed me to gain a more expansive knowledge of specific patient populations including men and women’s health, pediatrics, and geriatrics. The program really gives you an advanced perspective on health care and the confidence to tackle many different medical conditions.”
