USF’s Pre-Chiropractic Biology program will prepare you to successfully transition into chiropractic school. You’ll grow in your knowledge and skills as you study with professionals and apply your skills in real-world settings.

USF’s Pre-Chiropractic curriculum provides deep scientific knowledge in biology, microbiology, genetics, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. Your studies will focus on the intricacies of the human body in coursework, lab work, and in real-world experiences.

Two Options

You can either complete the 4-year Pre-Chiropractic Biology degree at USF or transition into Logan University’s Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) program after three years at USF.

3+3 with Logan University

Our partnership with Logan University can save you a full year off a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After three years at USF, qualified students can transition to Logan to start the D.C. degree, essentially earning both degrees in six years instead of seven.

Academic Plan

An academic plan is a general blueprint showing how one might complete the degree, semester by semester.

Learn by Doing

USF’s Human Cadaver Lab offers a distinct advantage! You will spend two semesters in the lab, working with human muscles and bones to see firsthand how they move and respond. Most students in the field do not have this opportunity until graduate school!

Professional Experience

During your final year, we’ll help you find an internship or job shadowing experience with a local chiropractor. The university has extensive relationships in the region’s health care community.
