PASADENA, Texas – Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) and University of Houston-Clear Lake are excited to announce the signing of an agreement which establishes a partnership between TCC’s chiropractic clinic and UH-Clear Lake’s Health Services office.
Starting Sept. 4, 2013, student interns from TCC, under the supervision of an attending clinician, will provide year round services free of charge to UH-Clear Lake students, faculty and staff with appointments available Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon in UH-Clear Lake’s Health Center located in the Student Services and Classroom Building, 2700 Bay Area Blvd., Houston. Additionally, for care that requires off-hour attention or more frequency, UH-Clear Lake students, faculty and staff will be offered the opportunity to visit the Moody Health Center on the TCC campus in Pasadena under the same arrangement.
"This agreement builds on the relationship between TCC and UHCL while adding value to the highly regarded team already in place at UHCL's Health Center,” Dr. Barry Wiese, TCC Dean of Clinics said. “We are very excited about the opportunity to bring chiropractic care to the UHCL campus, the experience it will provide to our senior interns, and the chance to integrate ourselves with the other healthcare practitioners in the Health Center. I really feel it's a win-win for all involved."
“It is such a pleasure to establish partnerships that will provide quality services to our students, faculty and staff,” says UH-Clear Lake Director of Health Services Regina Pickett. “The agreement with TCC’s chiropractic clinic gives the university community access to top-notch chiropractic care.”
This landmark relationship comes on the heels of an agreement signed in the spring of 2011 which established the first of two dual degree programs. The first program established the partnership between TCC’s Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree and UH-Clear Lake’s Master of Science in Fitness and Human Performance (FHP) and the second, which launches this fall, with UH-Clear Lake’s Master of Science in Biology. The FHP dual-degree program which now boasts several graduates allows current, qualified TCC students to apply and upon completion, students will hold both a master’s degree from UH-Clear Lake and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from TCC in less than four years.
For interns at TCC, this partnership will add to their opportunities for clinical rotations. The Moody Health Center currently offers a clinical presence at many area non-profit organizations including the Bridge Over Troubled Waters and El Centro de Corazón as well as a rotation with the Rice Athletics Program.
The Moody Health Center at TCC is located at 5912 Spencer Highway, Pasadena, TX, 77505 and is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Call 281-487-1501 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment today.
