Sherman Chiropractic College publishes a monthly newsletter called Sherman Shares, it features news about Sherman College, upcoming events, continuing education opportunities, research news, and activities on campus. I’m sharing some of the highlights from this months newsletter here.
Interns Join Chiropractic Health Center at Sherman College
Twenty-four interns are now ready to serve the community and see patients at the Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center, which serves 35,000 patient visits each year. Interns celebrated the entrance of this final phase of their chiropractic education recently during a pinning ceremony on the Sherman College campus.
“Sherman students transitioning into their clinical internship at the Health Center are well prepared to deliver quality and effective care to our friends and neighbors in the greater Spartanburg area,” said Dean of Clinic Operations and Outreach Kristy Shepherd, M.A. “These students are the future of the chiropractic profession.”
The Chiropractic Health Center at Sherman College is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Walk-ins are accepted, but it is best to call 864-578-8777 to set an appointment. For more information, visit the Health Center info page.
