Take Your Skills from the Classroom to the Clinic
As a Doctor of Chiropractic student at Logan University, you’ll be exposed to more clinical opportunities earlier in your education than in any other chiropractic program. Supervised by teaching clinicians, student doctors and residents receive extensive clinical training in a variety of chiropractic techniques while treating patients for conditions ranging from back and neck problems to headaches, allergies and injuries.
Clinical experience for both DC and master’s degree students begins in the Assessment Center. Working with fellow students and standardized patients trained to simulate specific conditions, you’ll gain hands-on experience assessing symptoms and recommending treatments. This multi-disciplinary learning environment will empower you to become more proficient in all areas of patient care as you proceed through the Logan clinic system.
In Trimester 7, you’ll report to the Montgomery Health Center where faculty clinicians will guide you through the process of treating patients as you work with other students and family members to hone your skills.
In Trimester 8, you’ll enter one of Logan’s outpatient health centers where you will treat members of the public under the supervision of faculty clinicians. The Health Center Practicum is a one-year course that will expose you to a variety of patient encounters and cases.
Student doctors may also participate in rotations at a variety of health centers offering chiropractic care to diverse audiences including veterans, physically disabled, unhoused or underinsured populations. Logan continues to build relationships and expand opportunities for our student doctors. Current relationships include:
