We educate successful chiropractors.
At Palmer College of Chiropractic, you'll experience an academic program that blends theory with hands-on practice, delivered by faculty who are recognized as the best in the profession and truly care about their students' success.
It's no surprise that nearly a third of all practicing chiropractors are Palmer graduates.
With three campuses in Davenport, Iowa; Port Orange, Fla., and San Jose, Calif., the college is home to the world’s largest chiropractic library, the largest chiropractic student body, and the largest chiropractic research program. Palmer faculty also lead the profession, authoring the textbooks used in many chiropractic schools and producing much of the scientific articles on chiropractic.
Chiropractic and You
Palmer’s Doctor of Chiropractic students are trained to think like doctors from day one. In your first year, you’ll study anatomy, physiology, neurology, diagnosis, chemistry, pathology and bacteriology. In your second year, you’ll take classes in chiropractic technique, x-ray, and practice management. During your third year, you’ll dedicate your time to patient care in an outpatient clinic setting and preparation for your life after graduation.
In addition to rigorous academic and clinical preparation, Palmer prepares students to be business leaders. The Palmer Center for Business Development provides a wide range of business training and networking opportunities for both students and alumni on all three campuses.
