September 10, 2012
George A. Goodman, DC, FICC, president of Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs, has announced a “3+3” articulation agreement with Benedictine University at Springfield, Ill. The 3+3 agreement allows students to complete the first three years of undergraduate study (at least 90 semester hours of specific coursework including physics, chemistry and biology) at their undergraduate “home institution,” then transfer to Logan to begin the Doctor of Chiropractic Degree Program. By the end of their first year in the Doctor of Chiropractic program, these students earn the basic science credit hours needed to complete their bachelor’s degree from their undergraduate colleges as well as satisfying their basic science requirements during the first year of graduate studies at Logan leading to the Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Dr. Todd Lafrenz, director of pre-professional health programs at Benedictine University, said with the recent additions of Benedictine’s biology and health science degree programs, the articulation agreement with Logan offered their students another avenue though which to achieve their educational and career objectives at a chiropractic college.
“Our goal is provide more academic pathways for students,” he said. “This agreement rounds out the academic offerings at Benedictine, while saving students who are interested in pursuing careers in chiropractic both time and money.”
At Logan, the program is administered by the Office of Admissions. “We’re very pleased with the 3+3 agreement between Logan and Benedictine University,” said Dr. Boyd A. Bradshaw, vice president of enrollment management. “This is a ‘win-win’ situation for Benedictine students who have a passion for improving human health and performance and want to enroll in a Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree Program.”
Benedictine University at Springfield joins nearly 50 other academic institutions around the country that have articulation agreements with Logan.
Since 1935, Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs has been preparing students to enter the health care marketplace to become successful Doctors of Chiropractic. To fulfill individual professional goals, Logan also offers its students, graduates and other professionals a choice of two academic master’s programs – a Master of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation, and an online Master of Science in Nutrition and Human Performance. Other program offerings include an Accelerated Science Program to help students complete their basic science coursework at an accelerated pace and two undergraduate programs – A Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Biology and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Life Science.
