Why Texas Chiropractic College?
We simply believe that, at Texas Chiropractic College, you will find an experience that cannot be matched. For some students, it is our world class faculty that makes the difference. For others, it is our Preceptorship and Hospital Rotation programs. And for others, it is the campus community and the way we personify the Power of Healing.
But for everyone at TCC, it is the overwhelming sense of togetherness and collaboration they experience every day on our campus and in our clinics that truly sets this College apart from other chiropractic schools. That commitment to “together” goes beyond faculty working with students, though that is a huge part of it. It extends to:
- Our students learning from one another
- Our faculty who view TCC students as professional partners and medical teammates
- Our longstanding alliances with nearly 30 hospitals and medical centers
- Our proud service to the greater community in need of quality health care
- Our distinguished history of integrating scientific and evidence-based theory with unparalleled opportunities for hands-on training
At TCC, our Powerful Education comes from a philosophy that, for more than a century, has helped to shape our:
TCC is one of the oldest chiropractic colleges in America, and is widely recognized as one of the best. We also were among the first chiropractic schools in the nation to earn both regional and professional accreditations.
TCC’s Preceptorship Program was the first of its kind for chiropractic schools anywhere in the world. Our Hospital Rotation Program is the largest and best integrated among chiropractic colleges nationwide. And our Iwama Education Center has been heralded as one of the finest facilities in chiropractic education with the Assessment Center serving as a model for other colleges.
TCC’s scientific and evidence-based approach to chiropractic positions students to become vital, respected members of the health care delivery system. Our faculty is comprised of seasoned experts, all of whom hold the highest degree in their respective fields.
TCC’s emphasis on hands-on training is as extensive as it gets. Our clinical internships, preceptorships, Hospital Rotation Program, clinic visitation programs, and community service opportunities have set an industry standard that is hard to match.
TCC’s students, faculty, administrators, staff, and alumni represent all walks of life and are the foundation of our impressive legacy. Our people consider TCC to be, more than anything, an extended family.
TCC’s outpatient services at Moody Health Center help meet the vital health care needs of the local community. Further, our chiropractic post-graduate and chiropractic continuing education programs offer high-quality services and programming to the public and profession.
TCC’s location in the Greater Houston Metropolitan Area will provide to you the seemingly endless array of cultural, professional, educational, and recreational opportunities afforded by the fourth-largest city in the United States.
TCC’s graduates are second to none. A recent survey found that 90 percent of TCC alumni had either started their own practice, or were associates at existing practices, within one year of graduating. And others had pursued additional graduate study or accepted positions teaching or in research.
