Logan's Master's Degree Programs Qualify for Diplomate Certifications

Doctors of Chiropractic who have completed Logan’s Master of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation (MSR) or the Master of Science in Nutrition and Human Performance (MSN) may be eligible for diplomate certifications in their specialized areas.

The American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP), the education arm of Chiropractic Sports Medicine in the U.S., serves as the governing body for both the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) and Diplomate American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP) certifications.

Likewise, the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (CBCN), under the governing body of the American Chiropractic Association, offers a Diplomate Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition to qualifying Doctors of Chiropractic.

To be eligible for the DACBSP, a DC must have earned the CCSP and have completed 300 hours of postgraduate education or the equivalent, peer reviewed or published material and 100 hours of practical experience in the field, before passing a written and practical exam.

Eligibility regulations for the CBCN require a DC to have 300 hours of postgraduate education and two written case histories from actual patient files.

“The coursework fulfills the hours required, and practical experience may be applied as well,” said David Parish, DC, MS, CSCS, DACBSP, ICCSP, program director for the Master of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. “You are accruing those requirements as a student rather than spending nights and weekends in postgraduate or field work outside of your practice.”

Robert Davidson, PhD, program director for the Master of Science in Nutrition and Human Performance, said he is pleased to know the program’s coursework satisfied the requirement for the diplomate status. 

“We’ve had several students express great interest, so as we get the word out, I imagine there will be many more interested in pursuing this certification.”

Logan University Recognized by the Arthritis Foundation

The Arthritis Foundation has recognized Logan University as a 2015 Corporate Honoree for its efforts in working with the Foundation to battle arthritis since 2007. Over the past nine years, Logan has raised more than $125,000 for the Foundation and has hosted the Walk to Cure Arthritis event on its campus since 2012.

"We are thrilled to be honoring Logan University and Dr. Robert Kuhn at the 35th Annual Silver Ball this December," said Jan Bignall, Area Vice President of the Arthritis Foundation in the Heartland Region. "With the help of Logan, the Arthritis Foundation continues to lead the fight for the arthritis community and help conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections."

The Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Foundation’s annual community fundraising 5K walk event; nationwide, the event has raised more than $7.8 million toward finding a cure for arthritis, according to the foundation’s website.

Robert Kuhn, DC, DACBR, ART, who was instrumental in the partnership with the Arthritis Foundation, served as the Logan representative with the Arthritis Walk Committee from 2007 to 2012. In 2012, he became the volunteer event chairman and began hosting the Arthritis Walk on Logan’s campus.

Martha Kaeser, DC, MEd, Director of Academic Assessment, has succeeded Dr. Kuhn as the chair of the Walk to Cure Arthritis in St. Louis. “The award is a symbol of our commitment and passion for service to the local community as well as a great way for us to partner with an organization that supports chiropractic as part of the integrated health care team providing patient care to people with arthritis,“ she said.

Dr. Kuhn will accept the award on behalf of Logan at the Foundation’s 35th Annual Silver Ball gala on Dec. 5 in St. Louis.
