Program Overview

National University’s distinctive and innovative curriculum integrates knowledge with application. By providing you with a comprehensive base in human biology and anatomy and offering you extensive hands-on training in diagnosis and treatment, we train you to think like a physician.

As a National University chiropractic student, you will:

  • Master a variety of chiropractic techniques through our diversified technique curriculum, which also includes training in flexion-distraction technique
  • Practice evaluation and diagnostic techniques with “standardized patients”
  • Personally perform complete human dissection rather than learn by prosection or virtual instruction
  • Explore alternative treatment methods, including nutritional counseling, therapeutic exercise, physical therapy, rehabilitation, lifestyle modification, postural retraining, and botanical remedies
  • Gain valuable  business expertise from experts in the field who will cover topics like funding your practice, ethically promoting and marketing your office, joining managed care organizations, and working effectively with other health care disciplines
  • Experience 12 months of full-time clinical practice at one of National University’s Whole Health Centers
