Community Based Internships (CBI) Program

The Community Based Internships (CBI) program is a clinical training program which operates in both private and public clinics not affiliated or owned by Parker University. The CBI experience occurs in the student’s final trimester of their education prior to graduation and lasts approximately 15 weeks. The program is designed to reinforce and strengthen the student’s knowledge and skills learned in both their academic and clinical education. CBI programs include a multitude of Practice Based Internship (PBI) (individual private practices) locations, both within Texas and across the United States, several U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals and clinics, one U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) location (Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, WA), the Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF) (a prestigious non-profit academic medical center), and three International rotation sites (Canada, Jamaica and Spain).
The purpose of Parker’s CBI program is to provide students a variety of training sites in order to expand their clinical competencies and experiences, help build their confidence levels, and prepare them to be industry-ready upon graduation in pursuit of becoming successful and professional doctors of chiropractic.
Doctors in all CBI programs are credentialed as Parker University Extension Faculty. Prior to participation, CBI doctors are thoroughly vetted and subsequently trained to properly and skillfully mentor Parker University students. Additionally, their documentation efforts are audited so to ensure participating students are continuing to perform and learn the highest level of medical documentation standards.
