Our commitment to research is demonstrated by our journals, our extensive current research, and the number of student research opportunities available. You’ll find evidence-based practice is an important part of each phase in our curriculum.

As a student, Nate wrote a research article on sports-related concussions that was later published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine after he graduated. He had originally given a presentation on the research at the 2012 Chiropractic Sports Symposium.
