A Message from the President,
Dr. Clay McDonald
At Logan, our students are taught the principles of patient-centered health care. Our students, faculty and clinicians are challenged to improve patients’ health while making the health care system better for all patients.
When we assume this leadership role, the patient will benefit. As a leader in integrated health care, we ensure patients receive evidence-informed, whole-person care. We restore function, alleviate pain, promote wellness and provide patients with improved quality of life. That’s the Logan difference.
We invite you to explore our academic programs, which range from our undergraduate offerings to our flagship Doctor of Chiropractic Degree Program, Doctorate of Health Professions Education, our innovative Master’s Degrees in Sports Science and Rehabilitation, and Nutrition and Human Performance and Health Informatics and our Bachelor's Degrees.
Discover life at Logan beyond the classroom. Our hands-on clinical instruction and collaborative training model places our students in real-world settings — trained to treat patients, work with health care partners and not-for-profit service organizations, and lead an integrated health care system. Off campus, you’ll enjoy Chesterfield’s vibrant arts and parks, and you’ll be minutes from downtown St. Louis attractions.
I invite you to visit campus today — I am confident you will see the Logan difference.
