    Busy week for National, it appears. It was announced on Friday that NUHS and Georgetown University Medical Center have formed a cooperative relationship. National students can now get preferential admission to Georgetown's graduate programs and Georgetown will now offer a one year graduate program in complementary and alternative medicine, with a focus on research into various CAM modalities.

    I read it this morning. I'm very happy to see what National is doing and what it has done in the past to help to advance the chiropractic profession. It's time for other chiropractic schools to step up!

    On a side note, there is a good article by Dr. Winterstein about expanding chiropractic practice into the realm of medicine. (Dynamic Chiropractic – June 3, 2011, Vol. 29, Issue 12. "Best for the Profession or Best for the Public?")

    NUHS PA program in 2015

    Also read today, and heard from few PAs at my hospital, confirmed with NUHS faculty that NUHS is going to start a PA program in 2015.....That's an impressive growth, since I graduated, NUHS added and received full accreditation in: ND, MSOM, MSc.Ac, Massage Therapy and Biomedical Sciences....

    And NUHS is the only school with a MD clinican on staff, and at least 5 faculty MDs which is also new to me: (2 of them are DC, MDs)

    New MD Faculty Clinician at NUHS Whole Health Center - Defining the future of integrated health care |*National University of Health Sciences

    I guess the NUHS figured that since they have at least 5 MDs as faculty, why not use their credentials to add a PA program....I wouldn't be surprised if they add a DO & DPT at one point. NUHS has the resources, the facilities, the faculty and money to do it....

    Having a MSc.PA would surely add to the school's image !

    I would love to see a MPH at National. It shouldn't be too difficult if they're getting a PA program.

    Dear NUHS,

    Why not offer a 4 year dual-degree program which alows DC's to also become licensed Nurse Practitioners? They would then be able to Rx, on their own, in about half the states in the US. THAT is pushing the envelope.

    My wife is a NP, and plans to start her DNP soon so I feel like I can answer this. The amount of time required for clinicals for the MSN, or the Doctor of Nursing Practice is almost identical to the clinical time requirements for the DC. So I am relatively sure that it is not possible to design a dual degree program for these two tracts that can be completed in just 4 years. 5 years maybe. Less than that and one or the other would probably suffer substantially. I would like to see some dual degree programs, but NP tract is not a good candidate due to the intensity of both programs. Keep pushing though. We need more movers and shakers like you.

    Oh and congrats on going to NUHS. I'm sure you will love it.
