Doctor of CHIroPractic Clinical Opportunities

A valuable component of Northeast's educational programming lies in the clinical opportunities it offers students preparing for practice in integrative environments. Differences related to each clinical opportunity vary by length of time in the opportunity, if graduation credits need to be completed, and if the student can treat versus observing.

Students can gain hands-on learning from expert mentor-practitioners in an array of diverse healthcare environments, including major hospitals, research centers, and clinics such as Veterans Administration (VA) medical centers, Northeast-run Health Centers across New York State, Salvation Army clinics, and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
