PASADENA, Texas – Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) is proud to share a recent Wall Street Journal article on “The Best and Worst Jobs of 2013.” The article was released by the Journal from CareerCast.com which ranked 200 jobs from best to worst based on five criteria: physical demands, work environment, income, stress and hiring outlook.
Chiropractic was ranked as the 11th best occupation in 2013, up from number 19 in 2012. Earning high marks for work environment, stress level and hiring outlook; this comes as no surprise to TCC president Dr. Richard G. Brassard.
PASADENA, Texas - Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) will be well represented at the 2013 Association of Chiropractic Colleges' Research Agenda Conference as 46% of its faculty has contributed to research being presented in Washington, D.C.
Eighteen current TCC faculty members are a part of 10 platform presentations, four poster presentations and a clinical workshop, all on a variety of topics. Additionally, nine current TCC students are co-authors of four of the platform presentations and two of the poster presentations. Eleven faculty members are taking advantage of the college’s spring break to attend ACC-RAC.
This agreement led to the creation of the Chiropractic Early Admission Program as part of SHSU’s Medical & Allied Health Programs (MAHP), and facilitates the admission and academic transfer of students from SHSU to TCC. This program ensures a seamless transition of students seeking to complete their Bachelor of Science degree from SHSU while at the same time pursuing a Doctor of Chiropractic degree through TCC. The agreement, which is effective immediately, will enable future and current SHSU students to complete both degrees in six years, with the first three occurring at SHSU and the final three at TCC.
