Interested in a career in natural health care?
A career in chiropractic has the potential to spark lasting change in the health and wellness of others. Chiropractic is the art and science of helping the body reach its full potential through proper functioning of the nervous system. It is a natural alternative to medicinal pain relief, and it helps people significantly improve their health and wellness, making a true difference in their quality of life.
Since 1951, Parker has been dedicated to educating leaders in the chiropractic profession. Our curriculum honors the art, philosophy and science of chiropractic, and our education is designed to prepare you for a rewarding career as a doctor in this field.
Chiropractic is part of a major trend towards integrated health care. Chiropractors are being called on more and more to provide care, as part of a movement calling for health care professionals to work collaboratively to help patients achieve and maintain optimum health. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, employment of chiropractors is expected to increase by 28 percent from 2010 to 2020, twice as fast as the average for all occupations.
