Experience is everything, and at Sherman, you will get a lot of it. During your last two years here, you’ll serve as a chiropractic intern in our on-campus Chiropractic Health Center, where you’ll fully engage in all aspects of patient care, developing your chiropractic and business management skills through practical, hands-on experience.

As an intern, you’ll train and provide care using the most advanced techniques, state-of-the-art analytical and adjusting equipment and the latest research data. You’ll experience what it means to impact the health and well-being of children, athletes, the elderly, and entire families through chiropractic care. And you’ll gain a deep appreciation for how profoundly chiropractic care can impact people’s health.

During your last five quarters as a chiropractic intern, you will be fully immersed in all aspects of patient care in order to develop essential clinical competency, prepare for licensing exams and learn how to be a competent, compassionate, ethical and successful doctor of chiropractic.

Together, with licensed chiropractic faculty, you will be responsible for:
