DO to DC: Student Robert Cozzens Pursues Loves for Holistic Care

Robert Cozzens, DO has always been passionate about helping others. After completing his undergraduate degree from the University of Louisville, he went on to complete medical school. After working in family medicine, however, he quickly realized the path he was on was not meant for him.

“I truly enjoyed the osteopathic aspects of my job, but the medicine part just wasn’t sitting right with me,” Dr. Cozzens said. “I knew I had a passion for Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, so I began looking for other medical residencies to participate in.”

Dr. Cozzens learned that securing a spot in a second residency program was going to be nearly impossible, so he started searching for other ways he could pursue his love for holistic medicine. After speaking with a friend about his concerns, Dr. Cozzens was intrigued by the option of chiropractic care.

“My friend’s sisters were all considering attending Logan for chiropractic school many years ago,” he said. “I knew I had to schedule a visit to the campus after hearing all the positive things my friend had to say.”

Dr. Cozzens, like many others, was immediately enamored with the beauty of Logan’s campus

“Logan’s campus is unlike any other university campus I have ever stepped foot upon. The natural beauty is astounding, but I also felt really safe,” he said.

He and his wife soon made the decision to move to St. Louis so he could begin working toward his chiropractic degree at Logan, and he’s now in his second trimester.

“I’ve learned so much from my professors in such a short time. They are very knowledgeable and easy to talk to,” he Robert. “I’m looking forward to continuing my education at Logan.”

After graduation, Dr. Cozzens hopes to find a teaching position within the chiropractic field, allowing him to combine two passions.

“I would love to stay and teach at Logan,” Dr. Cozzens said. “I’ve always greatly enjoyed teaching, so being able to educate future chiropractors and help them discover the amazing things this profession and this university can offer would be a dream come true.”
