Life West’s clinically inspired curriculum and whole-body health care approach allows our graduates to play a major role in the care of their patients, paving the way for measurable and meaningful results without the pharmaceutical-first approach all too common today.

Two Unique Locations

California & Nebraska Campuses

Whether you’re drawn to the sunshine and geography of Northern California or the charm, seasons and affordability of The Midwest, Life West has two fantastic locations to pursue a Chiropractic degree.

California Campus

Situated in the heart of The San Francisco Bay Area, our West coast campus provides a great learning location and an unparalleled home base for everything the West Coast has to offer: Professional opportunities, a bustling food & nightlife scene, Lake Tahoe, Napa, Yosemite and so much more.

Nebraska Campus

Brand-new in Fall 2023, our Bellevue, Nebraska campus (just outside of Omaha) offers friendly, Midwestern hospitality and a very reasonable cost-of-living, while boasting the lowest student-to-teacher ratio in chiropractic education.
