Career Support

At National University, we understand that what comes after commencement can be daunting; but you aren’t alone! That’s why we take a highly supportive role in helping you prepare for your future professional life while you’re still a student.

In the Classroom

NUHS Business Program

In addition to being an exceptional practitioner, successful chiropractic physicians must also possess superior business skills. National University’s newly redesigned business curriculum offers students a well-rounded education in everything that goes into running a business, from learning how to advertise, lease a building, manage employees and use accounting software.

NUHS students graduate with the confidence and real-world skills they need to succeed in in today’s health care marketplace.

Accessible Faculty

Faculty at National University are eager to assist students in their career goals, as well as well as their academic goals. Because NUHS provides a low faculty-to-student ratio, a high degree of interaction is a natural part of the learning environment. Many students find that former professors become their peers-and this advantage can become an invaluable bridge for building professional contacts above and beyond the academic sphere, helping form the platform for future career success.

Building Professional Connections

Alumni Ambassadors + Job Shadowing

Alumni Ambassadors are former National University students who continue to take their leadership role to heart once in the professional world. They contribute their time, and share their experiences and expertise to assistant current students.

Shadow opportunities are one of the most impactful ways our Ambassadors support current students. National University students are invited to join alums in their practices, giving them a unique hands-on perspective and a personal opportunity to observe and learn. Learn about one student’s impactful job shadowing experience.
