Campus Center for Health and Optimum Performance
From the first time our students enter these clinic doors, we work with them to create a healthcare team to support delivery of caring, quality healthcare to people. After years of rigorous academic preparation, the chiropractic student is ready to participate fully in the clinical education of the Campus Center.
Faculty Doctors of Chiropractic in this facility have literally decades of experience taking care of patients and teaching clinical skill that prepares students for their chosen profession. Students and faculty work together from a vitalistic view of healthcare that respects the self-healing, self-maintaining nature of life, and they begin to perfect that “team care” approach as they provide chiropractic services to their fellow students at Life.
Life University’s vision of influencing healthcare attitudes and practices isn’t contained by the walls of our state-of-the-art clinic facilities. Our commitment to the local, national, and even global community is to produce caring doctors of chiropractic who are educated to share the knowledge and joy of a balanced, healthy life with the help of chiropractic.
Senior Interns at Life University have several options to complete their clinical training. Each of these programs is designed to seamlessly combine the years of rigorous academics and clinical training.
In P.E.A.K., interns are connected with an experienced Doctor of Chiropractic in a private office and work with him/her in all aspects of the practice. The locations may be local, out-of-state, or international. This gives students the opportunity to use their skills in a real world setting and to see both how a business is run and how chiropractic helps the general public. Life University now has connections with doctors around the world for this opportunity. We have students who learning in offices next door and also as far away as, New Zealand, Argentina, Peru, snowy Sweden and exotic Ghana.
We are always hoping to expand the Life family of Extension Faculty doctors who are interested in opening their offices to our talented and enthusiastic interns. Doctors, who would like more information on the benefits of joining our PEAK network, please click HERE.
P.E.A.K. – Military
A pioneering and innovative version of the P.E.A.K. Program is the Military Clinic Program. This offers students an opportunity to participate in medical clinical rotations within military teaching hospitals located in West Virginia and Virginia. Under the supervision of expert chiropractors on staff at these hospitals, the intern provides care in cooperation with medical departments and specialties. This is an exciting opportunity for students to work with a variety of healthcare disciplines to create the best possible care for their patients.
Life University International Programs
We believe that access to comprehensive healthcare that considers the mind, body and spirit is not something that should only be available to people fortunate enough to be near a thriving chiropractic center like Life University. The gift of chiropractic should be accessible to the global community and our international education programs are part of our dedication to this.
P.E.A.K.* – International
*Practice, Excellence, Art, and Knowledge
Another option for Life University students to “go global” in the final quarters of their education is P.E.A.K. International. This program is designed for senior chiropractic students who wish to intern with an experienced doctor in an office located outside of the United States. The students who participate in this program not only are able to live the real-world applications of their educations in private practice, they can also see the beneficial effects of chiropractic care with a different culture. Currently, we have connections with doctors in Ghana, New Zealand, Argentina, Peru, and Sweden with more worldwide opportunities in the future. At Life University, we teach our students to be global citizens with responsibilities that go far beyond their hometown. We teach that it is chiropractic’s mission to help the world be alive with people who live the best possible life and this program is just one of the many ways we are moving to take the joy and knowledge of a balanced life internationally.
