The nation’s first university-based college of chiropractic, the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic (UBCC) was established in 1990 following licensure by the State of Connecticut of the University’s doctor of chiropractic degree program.
The University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic, located in Bridgeport, Connecticut, is a college within the University of Bridgeport, a non-profit, non-sectarian coeducational institution.
The College of Chiropractic is a professional degree program which grants the Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree to graduates who successfully complete four academic years of study, including a clinical internship. The program is offered on a full-time basis with no students admitted to a part-time course of study.
Chiropractic is the health profession which concerns itself with the relationship between structure and function of the human body, as that relationship may affect the restoration and preservation of health.
The College of Chiropractic prepares students to be primary health care providers. Each student is educated to diagnose, care for the human body in an evidence-based manner, and integrate their care within the larger health care system.
