What You Learn in the Pre-Chiropractic Program

Enroll in the Joint 2 + 2 Transfer Program. You earn an associate's and check off courses Palmer requires. Take some general education and electives in math and science. Learn anatomy and physiology, study organic compounds, and develop problem-solving skills. We'll guide you through the program.

What Can I Do With a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree?

You evaluate and treat the neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes nerves, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. People will come to you with back and neck pain, uncomfortable joints, and more. The clinical interventions you provide help them live full and active lives. Join a practice or start your own.

2+2 = Savings

Here’s a secret: biology is biology no matter where you take the course. But the cost isn’t the same. Do your first two years at EICC and wipe out those required general education courses, then transfer to finish your Bachelor’s degree. The 24 months and 60+ credits you earn with us will cost less than one semester at most public or private universities. Save your money. High-quality and low-cost. That’s our niche.
