The nation’s first university-based college of chiropractic, the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic (UBCC) was established in 1990 following licensure by the State of Connecticut of the University’s doctor of chiropractic degree program. The College of Chiropractic prepares students to be primary health care providers. Each student is educated to diagnose, to care for the human body, to understand and relate fundamental scientific information, and to consult with, or refer to other health care providers.
