About Northeast College of Health Sciences
Northeast College is located in Seneca Falls, New York in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes region. Two of the school’s graduate healthcare programs, its Doctor of Chiropractic and Master of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition (MSACN), are uniquely designed to help students earn accelerated healthcare degrees. The school offers a unique campus experience for students who enroll in the Doctor of Chiropractic program and an online program for those wishing to earn a Master of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition (MSACN). Both programs accept StraighterLine courses via transfer to help you save money and complete your degree with more flexibility.
Northeast College Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) Program
Northeast College’s Doctor of Chiropractic program is designed to help students earn a chiropractic degree in just 10 trimesters (three years and four months). Students train to become professional chiropractic practitioners, and pass board exams in both the U.S. and Canada. By partnering with StraighterLine, the school makes it convenient for students to fulfill the program’s undergraduate admissions requirement (90 credit hours), including its life and physical science (24 credit hours) and laboratory (at least of these courses will have a substantive laboratory component) prerequisites. This is particularly advantageous to students who may already have an undergraduate degree but need to take science and/or lab courses prior to applying. Northeast College is strongly committed to clinical and experiential learning.
Students receive multidisciplinary, hands-on opportunities in diverse settings of care to grow the quality and continuity of care for the patient. Beginning in the second trimester, students begin working with student patients. Remote clerkships are offered through affiliations with select institutions and facilities, providing opportunities for students to spend four to 12 months training at a remote location under a supervising doctor of chiropractic who, as an adjunct clinical faculty member, oversees student activities and mentors development.
Preceptorships are offered to eligible students at private, field-based offices in the United States by giving students realistic portrayal of the demands, responsibilities, and benefits of chiropractic practice by evaluating, examining, and treating patients. Professional clinical observations are available during the four final weeks of the 10th trimester and offer concentrated exposure to the various aspects of a field-based practice, also providing a realistic portrayal of the demands, responsibilities, and benefits of chiropractic practice.
Northeast graduates are deeply dedicated and expertly skilled and prepared to provide competent primary and collaborative healthcare in a wide variety of career settings, including private practice and associate positions; working in hospitals, healthcare, universities, and multidisciplinary settings; and professional affiliations with sports teams of all levels.
