Pre-Chiropractic Advising

Pre-chiropractic advising spans all the years of a student's Whitworth education. Explore your career interests, receive personalized guidance, and gain skills and experience outside of the classroom that will prepare you to be a competitive applicant for chiropractic school and a compassionate future practitioner.

Why pursue pre-chiropractic advising at Whitworth?

  • Find your calling. Vocational discernment is interwoven into all aspects of pre-chiropractic advising, from mentoring to seminars and guest speaker events.
  • Form connections with professors and advisors who want to see you succeed and will support you every step of the way. Our advisors even continue to assist students after their Whitworth graduation, particularly as they prepare their chiropractic school applications.
  • Gain experience working with individuals who are different from you. Enroll in a study abroad program that includes a medical internship, or join a student-run club like En Christo that serves low-income residents in Spokane. You will develop important perspectives you can apply toward a career in which you'll be working with patients from all walks of life.
  • Build leadership skills that will strengthen your résumé. At Whitworth, you will have many opportunities to develop into a capable and caring leader, whether by volunteering for a worthwhile cause, getting involved with student government or residence life, or serving as a teaching assistant.
  • Develop transferable skills that will make you more effective in your future career in healthcare and in other areas of life. A Whitworth liberal arts education will prepare you to think critically and communicate clearly.
  • Become who you're meant to be.
