Northwestern College of Chiropractic Founded in 1941, Northwestern College of Chiropractic (NWCC) is a visionary school whose innovative ideas and practices have led, and will continue to lead, generations of chiropractic doctors to the forefront of their profession. Northwestern's basic sciences, clinical, chiropractic and business education is excellent in preparing students to pass the National Boards and successfully enter clinical practice.

For more than six decades, excellence has been nurtured and inspired at Northwestern College of Chiropractic. The international reputation we have earned has been created in large part by our approach to educating our students.

Northwestern has pioneered an extraordinary and unique clinical system, with four Natural Care Centers, more than 150 community-based private-practice clinics, and final term preceptorship opportunities around the world. The University's public clinic system records more than 60,000 patient visits a year, making Northwestern the largest provider of natural health care services in Minnesota.

Northwestern's Doctor of Chiropractic program is a full-time day program consisting of more than 4,200 credit hours over 10 trimesters. The University admits new chiropractic students in January and September of each calendar year. Classes are held Monday through Friday.

Chiropractic students at Northwestern may also complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology while enrolled in the chiropractic program. Additional information about the Bachelor of Science degree program is available through the Office of Admissions.

I had a great experience at Northwestern, for the most part due to excellent camaraderie with fellow students. Teachers were great. Learning great. But not a fan of their continuing education department and alumni relations.
Suggestions
Improve on service to post grads.
Overall Opinion
Wouldn't go here again. Would choose another school probably.

I am all but done with at NWHSU, there have been times that I wished that I never came here and there have been times I am able to stand going here. If you are looking for straight science, worried about passing your boards and are pain based you should come here. Wellness is all but dead here at NWHSU and so is philosophy. If you don't have the motivation to get out and spend the time to learn about real chiropractic you need to sign up somewhere else. This school looks down on philosophy, practice management groups and techniques other than diversified. You can get some limited training in activator or the bastardisation of S.O.T (professors words not mine), but other than that you need to spend a lot of extra time flying around the country to learn about the techniques. When its all said and done you will know much more about diabetes than the spine, but then again they teach you how to pass boards, not how to be a principled chiropractor. If you have the determination that many of us have you will train yourself and pass the board with no problem, so it can be a good marriage. I have not gone to any other schools so I can't compare my experience, just telling you what its like going to school here. I hope this helps and God bless.
Suggestions
If you go to NWHSU you should get into the library and the green books and the blue books as soon as possible. Don't loose sight of why you wanted to be a chiro, stay on purpose and listen to some good ol Siggie in your free time.
Overall Opinion
I have pretty much summed it up. If you come here you will know your science, pass your boards easily and become a Dr. on paper. The rest of your education will have to come from feeding your innate on your own.

NWHSU gave me a great education. I can confidently speak with other healthcare professionals. The internship opportunities are great and make you ready to see a large volume of patients after graduation. The staff is great and incredibly educated. I am extremely proud to have attended such an accredited chiropractic college.
Suggestions
Despite what many students from other schools think, there is a great deal of philosophy taught and many clubs and organizations. If you didn't join or belong to these groups, that is no fault of the school. The school puts many different things at your disposal, you just have to take advantage of them. I would attend as many lectures outside of classes that they offer, because while you are in school there is no fee...and later lectures become quite costly. Pick an internship with a busy established practice so you can improve on your adjusting and other hands on skills by graduation.
Overall Opinion
I highly recommend NWHSU.

My dad gave me great advice, "just get your ticket" and I did. NWCC gave me the education that allowed me to pass the basic science exam (same one the MD's took) and the National Boards (on the first try) and get licenses in three states.
Suggestions
The only thing that could've improved my college experience was more philosophy. We got the basic sciences but more chiropractic would have been nice for the students without a chiropractic background.
Overall Opinion
I think that NWCC WAS a great school. I don't know how it compares 30 years later.

I attended NWHSU after medical school. I found the program exceedingly more difficult and thorough. I wanted to be trained as a physician who practices chiropractic and that is what I got. I could not be more pleased with NWHSU.
Suggestions
If you want to be a chiropractic physician, this school is exceptional from start to finish. If you want to be an old time chiropractor, this is not the best choice. This school is not for the faint of heart.
Overall Opinion
Exceptional.
