Our Academic Superiority
National University’s chiropractic program is rigorous, uncompromising, and built on a solid foundation in the basic sciences. We maintain the highest admission standards for our students.

Our History of Leadership
Founded in 1906, National University has over 110 years of experience in graduating leaders in the chiropractic profession. A driving force for moving natural health care into mainstream medicine, we were the first to offer hospital experience to chiropractic students, push for national accreditation of chiropractic colleges, and publish medically-indexed and peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Licensure of chiropractic medicine has different rules and procedures depending which state, country, or international region you wish to practice. To practice as a chiropractic physician in the U.S., students must pass the national board examinations conducted by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE). They must also apply for licensure in the state in which they plan to practice. Students are responsible for familiarity with the state’s scope of practice and licensing and renewal requirements.
To practice in Canada, students must pass the national board examination conducted by the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board (CCEB). Individuals interested in practicing in Canada should also inquire within their specific province or territory of interest for licensure requirements. Physicians wishing to practice in other international countries or regions may be required to pass the International Board of Chiropractic Examiners (IBCE) examination or other requirements specific to a location. Students are urged to visit the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) for more information.
The professional organizations representing chiropractic physicians include the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC).
