November 27, 2018 -- Logan’s College of Chiropractic has entered into an affiliation agreement to establish a preceptorship program with The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Department of Neurosurgery.
Under the direction of Jeff King, DC, MS, 2011 graduate of Logan University, who serves as an assistant professor at MCW, Logan student interns will receive clinical training in a high-quality patient care delivery system. The goal of the preceptorship program is to enhance patient care, education and research opportunities for both institutions.
“We are very excited to expand the number of schools participating in our preceptorship program,” said Dr. King. “Our hope is that by offering this transdisciplinary educational opportunity we can encourage students to have an interest in reaching across professions to provide the best possible care for their patients during their clinical careers.”
During 2018, Logan placed approximately 165 student interns in preceptorship programs with organizations, institutions and private practices around the world. Preceptorships at MCW will start in May 2019 wherein eligible students will go through a selection process.
Chair of Logan’s Department of Radiology Norman Kettner, DC, DACBR, FICC said Dr. King will bring awareness of patient-centered and cost-effective chiropractic care delivered in a multidisciplinary clinical environment, where he daily interacts across a range of specialties and disciplines. “This clinical environment is what the future is likely to reveal: chiropractic physicians directly integrated into the health care system,” he said.
