D'Youville Chiropractic School D'Youville is the first liberal arts college in New York State to offer a chiropractic degree program.

D'Youville's seven-year doctor of chiropractic degree program gives you two degrees and an in-depth understanding of the philosophy, principles and skills of the art and science of chiropractic. Students attending our chiropractic school are firmly grounded in the biological and chiropractic sciences, become proficient in applied research methods and are committed to evidence-based practice. Graduates understand the holistic nature of human beings and how to facilitate the body's natural healing ability.

While in chiropractic school, you'll acquire primary care skills in assessing and diagnosing human conditions. Therapeutic emphasis is directed toward the evaluation and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions utilizing manipulation therapy, soft tissue techniques and physiological therapies. Students also learn when to address the health and well being of patients by collaborating with other healthcare professionals. The program promotes an integrative healthcare system that fosters working relationships with other practitioners for the improved care of patients.

Reflecting the rigorous standards of the Council on Chiropractic Education (the accrediting authority for doctor of chiropractic programs), courses prepare the graduate for successful completion of both state and national licensing examinations.

This integrative chiropractic degree program offers highly motivated students the comprehensive preparation, critical thinking skills, and depth of expertise needed to take them from aspiring professionalism to leadership in one of the country's fastest growing professions.

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a unique and very specific science. It deals with the structure of the body, primarily the spine and spinal nervous systems, and the relationship between proper alignment of those structures and related bodily functions. It is a science firmly grounded in anatomy, physiology, neurology and biomechanics. Chiropractic seeks to maximize the inherent recuperative powers of the human body and by acting to realign structural elements of the spine through the process of chiropractic adjustment, to remove blockages to proper function. The chiropractic adjustment is a safe, skillfully planned clinical intervention that is delivered more than a million times each working day in the United States alone.

Chiropractic provides a natural approach to health and health care and offers the consumer an effective, drug free, non-surgical intervention for a wide range of conditions. Chiropractic is very much in tune with the values and priorities of individuals who are seeking to take control of their own personal health and health care decisions.

I went here because it was close to home. I have visited other schools since and what a difference! The program is underfunded and understaffed, almost no support staff. The department has no money for up to date equipment. Much of it is regularly broken. The classes are taught by the same core people with limited backgrounds in education. The program director is new to the job and has never ran a program before. Horrible management skills where she lets the students run the program more or less.
fire the program director and get an experienced administrator

I went to this school with high hopes. I found that they have a small amount of instructors in the core chiropractic program. my classes are taught by the same people. there is very little coordination between what is taught in one class and another. many classes cover the same information. the clinic situation is lacking in that only one clinic sees any volume of patients. their main outpatient clinic is severely understaffed where they have the students doing many things that should be done by clerical staff
stop letting the students run the program. get a program director that takes responsibility for the program and does not pass off problems as other peoples fault. get a program and clinic director with enough backbone to secure funds needed to run a better program
Overall Opinion
the college should be stellar with the available resources but everyone is worried about protecting their jobs and getting good student ratings which drags the program to a d+ or c rating

Let me start by saying I am NOT a graduate from this school. I did discover some misleading info on their homepage that reads... "All other chiropractic training in North America takes place in single-purpose chiropractic schools." University of Bridgeport functions as a university sytem with the chiropractic college being within a university offering both Bachelors and Masters degrees in business, liberal arts, design, and other health and science fields. SCUHS (formerly LACC) offers other degrees besides the Doctor of Chiropractic degree. I believe several other schools do as well.
D'Youville Chiropractic should do their homework and update their homepage. I am giving them one star on Leadership and one star for Overall.
Overall Opinion
Personally, I would only want to attend a "single-purpose chiropractic school" since my desire would be to become a chiropractor. If I wanted to be a therapist I'd go to therapy school. I realize others feel differently, this is just my opinion.

4 A well-rounded education.

D'Youville College has had an excellent reputation for over a century and I was thrilled when the chiropractic program started, right in my hometown. I got a BS in Biology and then my DC degree in just seven years. As an undergraduate, I took classes with students from many other majors which is great for networking. There were a few bumps along the way during my first few semesters of grad school, but thanks to the newest director, the program is now better than ever. As an intern, I was able to see patients at five different clinic sites and this meant that I wasn't treating the same type of patient all the time. I learned how to examine, diagnose, treat, and adjust patients from doctors with advanced credentials who studied at different chiropractic schools. This means that my technique is extremely diversified and I've learned that there's always another treatment option to consider for my patients.
It was great to pay undergraduate tuition for the seven years I was there, but the students need better assistance from the financial aid department. Also, some electives would have been nice.
Overall Opinion
This is an excellent program. The smaller class sizes allow for a lot of individual attention from highly-educated faculty, which is great for learning how to fine-tune your skills. Also, there are just as many women walking around and teaching as there are men.
