Pre Chiropractic

If you’re interested in treating and healing people as an allied health professional, consider a career in chiropractic medicine.

Multnomah has teamed up with University of Western States to offer an accelerated program that allows you to earn a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in six years. The program involves three years of biology at Multnomah and three years of study at UWS, eliminating an entire year of academic work and tuition compared to the traditional DC route.

You’ll be admitted to UWS when you complete the pre-chiropractic program with a minimum 3.25 GPA and meet the required admission criteria. (If your GPA is less than 3.25 but at least 2.75, you’ll be eligible for admission to UWS, but you won’t be guaranteed a seat.)

Once you’re admitted, you’ll finish your fourth year of undergraduate work at UWS to earn your biology degree. Then you’ll be on track to wrap up the DC program two years later. To ensure a smooth transition between schools, you’ll have full access to the admissions staff at UWS while you’re attending Multnomah.

The UWS Doctor of Chiropractic program emphasizes a whole-person approach to health care, including diagnosis, adjusting skills, physiological therapeutics, rehabilitation, nutrition and lifestyle management. You’ll hone your practical skills under the supervision of licensed chiropractic physicians, and you’ll have access to state-of-the-art lab facilities and equipment designed for aspiring allied health professionals.
