  • Admission Requirements

Essentials

Parker’s Neuroscience program consists of:
● A new enrollment period every 8 weeks (6 times per year)
● Fully online distance education instructional formats (with the exception of the clinical residency)
● A total of 33 credit hours

● 30 credit hours of neuroscience courses
● 3 credit hours of capstone course
● 3 credit hours of clinical residency (additional if the clinical neurology program is elected)

The program is offered online and consists of one track with a clinical residency and one without a clinical residency. Courses are 8 weeks in length, and students will take one course at a time. This results in two courses per semester (may qualify to take 2 courses per 8 weeks or 4 courses per semester). Students will complete the program in 12-24 months.

This program will prepare graduates to manage complex cases not typically seen in community-based primary care practices, such as traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, paraplegia and the sequelae to limb amputations.  It will also prepare graduates for positions in health care and health care education where they would function as expert clinicians (if they also hold a DC, MD, ND or equivalent degree and appropriate license), clinical consultants, researchers, and educators.

Outcomes

Graduates will demonstrate expert knowledge of and clinical skills of relevance to:
● Clinically relevant neuroanatomy of the peripheral, central and autonomic divisions of the nervous system
● The biological basis of neurological disorders that have been shown to respond to manual and adjunctive therapies.
● Diagnosis of selected neurological disorders.
● Management of those neurological disorders that respond to manual and adjunctive therapies.
● The critical analysis of clinically oriented neuroscience research.
● Oral and written communication skills appropriate for presentation at scientific meetings and for peer-reviewed publication.
