Dallas, TX - July 19, 2021

Parker University is excited to announce that its interns can now complete their rotation at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF) in Cleveland, Ohio. During this new rotation opportunity through Parker University’s Practice-based Internship (PBI), students will be supervised by a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) and Parker University Extension Faculty.

Parker University’s PBI encompasses clinical experience in 35 private practices during an intern’s 10th trimester. Interns provide chiropractic care to patients and observe practice management. Interns can use the skills they learn at Parker University under the guidance of a credentialed extension university faculty member in a private practice setting. This program allows interns to expand their knowledge by acquiring first-hand, real-life experience.

The CCF internship provides broad clinical experience and an exclusive opportunity for students to work with CCF’s Chiropractic Team. As part of the clinic’s Wellness Division, interns will be exposed to services like Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Holistic Psychotherapy, Reiki, and Massotherapy.

Parker University interns will undoubtedly experience everything that comes with a real-life hospital environment, helping them gain experience and insight into patient cases as part of a multi-doctor approach to providing optimal patient care. This diverse learning environment prepares students to tackle future cases with confidence, first-hand experience, and advanced knowledge.
