Northeast College of Health Sciences (formerly New York Chiropractic College) and Temple University have announced a new educational partnership. Together, the institutions have established an articulated program agreement provides a seamless pathway for Temple's College of Public Health students majoring in health professions, kinesiology, exercise and sport science, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, and natural sciences students in the College of Science and Technology to gain guaranteed admission in Northeast College's in-demand Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) program, if they meet a GPA requirement.

This 4+3 articulation track allows students to earn their doctorate in seven years: four years of undergraduate study at Temple followed by the three-year Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) program at Northeast.

"We are excited to partner with Temple University and welcome its College of Public Health students who are interested in studying chiropractic and becoming doctors," said Northeast College President Dr. Michael Mestan. "This partnership reflects our strong interprofessional nature and eagerness to cultivate education and leadership opportunities for as many students as possible."

"This is a great opportunity for College of Public Health students interested in a career in chiropractic medicine," says Jennifer Ibrahim, associate dean for academic affairs at the College of Public Health. "It's also a great fit as both institutions are committed to applied learning and clinical experience."
