Our official name
Our official name is Southern California University of Health Sciences. This should be used on first reference in all public-facing communications. Our acronym, SCU, may be used on second reference. We do not use the full acronym “SCUHS” in public-facing communications.
Over a century after Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC), California’s first chiropractic school was established in 1911, it grew into Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU), an expanded, multi-program university teaching the future of medicine and healthcare. SCU is committed to providing an academic community imbued with kindness, integrity, humor, and determination; and a culture of diversity and inclusion. SCU is improving the health and well-being of Southern Californians and their communities through excellence in student education, clinical care and research through forward-thinking modern Western healthcare practices, rooted and grounded in ancient Eastern techniques. SCU specializes in holistic healthcare education that goes beyond the diagnosis – and that treats the whole person. Since 1911, SCU has trained more than 18,000 future healthcare providers.
