The 2018 Winter Games are officially underway in PyeongChang! While athletes from 92 nations will take center stage, dedicated doctors will be behind the scenes — playing a pivotal role in keeping their teams in elite shape.

It is important to start with a solid platform of education around what it means to become a doctor, regardless of your field. You must have a very thorough and broad footing to build upon. That’s one of the advantages of SCU – that graduates are provided strong fundamental toolsets that accelerate and fast-track their career. SCU is an important partner to me. About 70% of the full time chiropractic employees at the USOC clinics are from SCU – and there’s a reason – because they’re very well-trained.
