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.
In Trimester 7, you’ll report to the Montgomery Health Center where faculty clinicians will guide you through the process of evaluating patients.
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:

The purpose of the External Rotation Program is to provide educational and clinical experiences in a clinical setting outside of the Logan University Clinic System. The rotation sites can range from small private practice settings, hospital settings, VA facilities, University settings, Federally Qualified Health Centers and DoD settings.

After graduation, Doctors of Chiropractic may participate in a radiology residency program for in-depth training in Diagnostic Imaging for the Chiropractic Physician. This program is a three calendar-year, on-campus academic residency program. On successful completion, residents are eligible to sit for the examination by the American Chiropractic Board of Radiology (DABCR).
