Embrace the future of integrative health care and receive advanced training through one of the full-time residency programs at Southern California University of Health Sciences. We offer a variety of dynamic programs that will help you gain specialized knowledge and skills to take your career to the next level.
During the program, you will be mentored by senior sports medicine chiropractors that are known nationally and internationally for their expertise in the field. In addition, you will participate in exciting, real-world sports and integrated healthcare settings, providing care for all levels of athletes from high school to world-class professionals. Residents selected for rotations with professional teams will travel throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Path to Certification
Get the advanced clinical experience to become a board certified Doctor of Chiropractic in Sports Medicine through a two-year residency program. Upon completion, you will be eligible to sit for the Diplomate examination of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP).
As a resident, you will become a member of the diagnostics imaging portion of the diagnosis department while following a comprehensive syllabus for your studies. You will also have the opportunity to spend time in the radiology departments of cooperative teaching hospitals and at two medical imaging centers, which provides meaningful experience beyond a purely chiropractic setting.
Get practical training in all aspects of radiology through SCU’s three-year in-house Diagnostic Imaging Residency program. Completion of such a residency is the only way for a Doctor of Chiropractic to become eligible for the ACBR examination.
