Oregon Chiropractic College plans to grow in 2009

By Daria Belov

There are 18 chiropractic schools, colleges, and universities throughout the United States, that offer a doctor of chiropractic program. Students can earn their doctor of chiropractic degrees in Eastern states, Southern states, Northern states, Midwestern states, and Western states, including the great state of Oregon. One chiropractic college based on the West Coast, Western States Chiropractic College, has plans for growing in 2009, with a planned new chiropractic clinic opening east of Portland, and a change in college to university status in the works.

Western States Chiropractic College one of the oldest chiropractic schools in existence and 2009 is promising to be a time for change for this 104-year-old institution. During the next few months the school is expected to demo two outdated structures which will make room for a state-of-the-art anatomy facility. To the school also has plans to open a clinic in Gresham, Oregon, a city in Multnomah County located immediately east of Portland.

Besides the campus remodeling and the opening of a new chiropractic and natural health clinic the school will be seeking university status this year. Changing from a college to a university, will provide Western States the opportunity to serve more students seeking advanced degrees in anatomy, sports, and exercise science, while expanding its ability to receive research grant funds.

The campus exists in a mostly residential area and is just off of Interstate 84, only minutes away from Portland International Airport (PDX). Having a nearby major airport is an added bonus when planning to earn a degree as Doctor of Chiropractic, making travel opportunities to visit family and friends easy (at least when the Portland area is not being buried in snow). The WSCC Chiropractic Campus is located at 2900 NE 132nd Ave. Portland, OR 97230.
