Parker University’s Doctor of Chiropractic program has a new track designed for students who perform well in a virtual environment and want to concentrate on their Doctor of Chiropractic science courses online for the first four trimesters.

Students in this track will begin courses on the Dallas campus at the end of the fourth trimester and will start hands-on instruction at that time. This track, like Parker’s standard DC program, positions students with the skills, hands-on hours, and requirements needed to graduate in 10 trimesters. Tuition and fees associated with this track provide the necessary technology needed for students to succeed in a distance-learning environment.
