After graduating with her Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic’s Davenport Campus in June 2006, Katie pursued a practice while working to obtain her diplomate in Chiropractic Pediatrics. However, she soon became disappointed in the quantity and quality of research in the area of pediatrics in chiropractic.
Katie enrolled in the Palmer Clinical Research Graduate Program in October 2006 to pursue a Master of Science degree in Clinical Research.
“I entered the program to help myself and the chiropractic profession understand research and the purpose for evidence-based practice,” said Katie.
After a year as a full-time clinical research fellow, Katie was hired in November 2007 as a clinical project manager at the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research.
“Since entering this program, I have come to realize the importance of research in health care and have therefore decided to focus my career on chiropractic research. This program allowed me to secure a position in chiropractic research and focus on my career goals full-time.”
Katie continues to pursue her M.S. degree on a part-time basis.
The Clinical Research Graduate Program is available on Palmer’s Davenport Campus. For more information, contact Lori Byrd Spencer at email@example.com.
