“Another great strength about a National education is the emphasis on diagnosis and patient management. You need diagnosis to treat, and a subluxation approach (offered at several other schools) is really a non-diagnostic approach.
The clinic opportunities for [Florida DC] students who do their internships at [St. Petersburg] are quite fantastic. You have a substantial St. Pete College patient base that is welcome to use the clinic as their doctor’s office, so you have a very broad patient base. That is unique to this campus among almost any other school in the country.”
