Doctor of Chiropractic student at our Florida site

"I love the fact that I've found a lot of my interests supported here at NUHS. Even though I'm a bit of a 'hippie' when it comes to my approach to people and medicine, I'm deeply rooted in the sciences."

Doctor of Chiropractic student at our Illinois campus

"During my time working at the hospital, I realized that the traditional medical approach was not the right fit for me. NUHS was the answer to that search in that it combined some of the traditional medical approaches with that of chiropractic medicine."
