Clinically Inspired Learning

No one else offers the exposure and opportunity to enter the health clinic as early as Life West does.

This focus in the Life West curriculum allows students to make deep connections between what they’re learning in the classroom and how to best care for patients.

Our graduates learn 5 core techniques before entering clinic, and may learn more than a dozen additional techniques as electives. Once they complete clinic requirements, they can enter a preceptorship, which propels them into a real-world chiropractic office, where they continue the hands-on experience of clinic in an external setting.

Clinically Inspired Learning is about more than a college curriculum. This is about creating confident and more competent graduates, who have the practice-ready advantage the moment they step away from Life West’s halls.

Life West provided care to more than 22,000 people in just two trips. Our India Clinic served more than 3,500 patients within the first 3 months of opening.

Sharing Chiropractic Around the World

Life West’s vision to create a brighter future for humanity is never stronger than when students, faculty and other chiropractors associated with the college are out there in the world, bring chiropractic to the world’s most under-served communities.

Regular service trips to India, Tonga, and locally to the Mission District in San Francisco and parts of San Francisco’s East Bay, have brought chiropractic care to thousands of people.

Join us as we prepare to bring chiropractic care to other parts of the world, such as Central America, Africa and China. Help us pave the way for new miracles to happen.

Business Institute & Career Services

The Life West Business Institute prepares Life West students to be “practice-ready” when they graduate, but there are also many services available for alumni. For students, the Business Institute uses a dual-pronged approach, offering a robust curriculum of business-related classes in addition to one-on-one counseling. Need help? Life West can offer it, for everything from writing a resume to opening an office.

All services ensure that each student has a better understanding of how to run a successful chiropractic practice from a business aspect. But these services don’t end with graduation—the programs are structured to follow Life West alumni through their career and assist as needed.
