Life West students gain hands-on experience much earlier than their peers and graduate with significantly more clinical hours. This advantage enhances knowledge retention and ensures they are genuinely confident and prepared for a seamless transition into the role of a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Prepare yourself for a successful career with a robust mix of clinical experience and academics

Traditionally, chiropractic students have taken a sequential path — spending the first half (or more) of their program in a strictly academic classroom environment before transitioning to more hands-on, clinical components.

At Life West, we feel that immersing students in the clinical aspect should happen in parallel to their academic studies, allowing students the practical application of their work in tandem with their classroom studies.

In short, Life West students begin getting hands-on experience significantly earlier than any other program and will graduate with significantly more hours of clinical experience — a huge advantage in knowledge retention and being truly prepared for your post-graduation transition as a Doctor of Chiropractic.
