The University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic curriculum is divided into three phases:
Basic Sciences, Clinical Sciences, and Clinical Services.

  • Basic Sciences

    The basic science curriculum instructs students in Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Public Health, and Pathology. These courses are offered primarily during the first two years of a student’s education.

  • Clinical Sciences

    Students are given in-depth training in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Practical hands-on training is included beginning in Semester I and continuing to graduation. Courses include: Chiropractic History, Chiropractic Principles and Practice, Diagnosis, Radiology, Technique Procedures, Nutrition, and Physiological Therapeutics and Rehabilitation Procedures.

  • Clinical Services

    The clinical services phase of the curriculum is the last and most important aspect of the UBCC program. Interns at the College’s Chiropractic Health Center care for patients under the supervision and direction of licensed doctors of chiropractic. In addition to providing care in UB’s on-campus clinic, students have the opportunity to participate in off-campus rotations and internships.

To learn how UBCC students fulfill these program requirements, visit our Course Offerings page for curriculum and course information.
