College of Chiropractic
A hands-on path to helping people lead better lives.
Earning a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland University-Kansas City is a transformative journey that takes as little as three and a half years for students who want to make a difference in health care.
Cleveland’s chiropractic program focuses on the structure and function of the human body, blended with a holistic approach to health care. While students take classes on the importance of spinal function in relation to the nervous system, they’re also participating in hands-on labs, independent and group study projects, and research studies. Chiropractic students experience real patient care during clinical internships or at off-site treatment facilities.
Our accessible chiropractic educators pass on a philosophy that emphasizes the acceptance of the human body as a self-regulating and self-healing organism. Cleveland chiropractic graduates go on to use spinal and extremity adjusting techniques, along with lifestyle advice, to help patients help themselves.
While Cleveland’s accelerated Doctor of Chiropractic program can be completed in just 3.3 years (10 trimesters), more flexible options are available. Qualified applicants can enter the chiropractic degree program in September, January or May of each year.
