New York Chiropractic College has gone to great lengths to create the country’s top healthcare professionals, providing them with an unparalleled education and offering exciting clinical opportunities. Its coursework accommodates a rapidly evolving healthcare market. NYCC students consistently score well on both the National Board Examinations and on Canada’s Chiropractic Board Exams, signifying that the College’s efforts are paying off.
“Hands On” Training
NYCC’s integrated health centers, located in Seneca Falls, Buffalo, and Long Island, offer students real-world experiences and diverse clinical outreach opportunities. During their final trimester, students may participate in internship programs at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, or undertake externships with chiropractic and acupuncture practitioners throughout the nation.
Students learn the latest in evidence-based concepts, often finding that a dual degree—for example, pairing chiropractic with a masters degree in acupuncture or nutrition—produces a powerfully effective combination that attracts America’s increasingly astute patients. Faculty members pride themselves on their hands-on approach to healthcare, often conducting independent research in clinical and the basic sciences. In fact, NYCC was recently awarded a federal grant of over one million dollars from the Department of Health and Human Services to study modalities that are proving most effective in the treatment of lower back pain. The trials will be performed in conjunction with the Canandaigua Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center and in private practices throughout the Rochester area.
Preparation for Exciting Careers
NYCC’s Career Development Center helps students make the successful transition from academia to the “real world” of practice. Career resources include a state-of-the-art “Chiromap” that displays demographic information enabling students to find the best places in the United States and in Canada to practice. The office maintains a database of over 2,000 associateships, partnerships, and office-coverage opportunities, as well as available equipment for rent or sale. There is no shortage of resource materials in the center; videos and computer software help students conduct a successful job search, explore state licensure information and learn practice management techniques.
The College’s Center for Postgraduate and Continuing Education seminars keep practitioners abreast of current clinical concepts and new techniques. Relevant offerings are conveniently offered through classrooms, online, within home study packets, and through teleseminars.
NYCC’s Masters Degree offerings are for those students who want to specialize in particular areas of healthcare. For example, NYCC’s School of Applied Clinical Nutrition, offered one weekend each month, enables professionals to meet patients’ critical requirements for nutritional information. A Masters Degree in Diagnostic Imaging is a four-year, full-time residency devoted to chiropractic radiology and qualifies successful candidates to sit for the examinations that lead to a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Radiology (DACBR) certification. A Masters of Clinical Anatomy is perfect for those people seeking to enter careers in secondary educational settings. The Master of Science Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, as well as various fellowship opportunities, provide licensed students and graduates, alike, with the opportunity to expand both their knowledge and their marketability.
