Clinic Internship Program

Each DC student serves a full year clinical internship. NUHS offers many exciting intership options that give you the experience and confidence you need to prepare for your future as a physician.

NUHS Clinics and Whole Health Centers

At National’s clinics, you’ll learn first-hand how to practice chiropractic as primary care medicine under clinical supervision. You’ll have access to professionals from other specialties, our residents and faculty clinicians, as well as have use of our diagnostic imaging and MRI equipment.

In addition to learning clinical applications of chiropractic medicine and proper documentation procedures, you will learn important personal and business skills you’ll need to help build your own practice.

Your clinical experience can be completed at any one of the clinics affiliated with National:



NUHS Clinical Clerkship Program

Some students elect to complete part of their internship experience through National’s Clinical Clerkship Program. This program offers students the opportunity to gain valuable clinical experience in a private practice setting under the supervision of approved doctors who are experienced, ethical, and successful physicians. The supervising doctors participating in this program are considered adjunct faculty of NUHS.

Hospital Rotations and Clerkships

NUHS also offers the chance for select students in the Doctor of Chiropractic program to participate in exciting hospital internship experiences. To apply for one of our hospital rotations, students must have a minimum 2.75 GPA and apply through the Dean of Clinics. Hospital rotations and clerkships may last from one to six months, depending on the program and the supervising physician’s schedule. Current hospital rotations and clerkships for DC students include:
