The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research is dedicated to conducting innovative, significant, high-quality research. We also are dedicated to training students who are interested in the advancement of public health through research.
We train students in two ways: through a two-year, 36-credit-hour master’s degree in clinical research on Palmer’s Davenport Campus, and through our Research Honors Program for Doctor of Chiropractic students on all of Palmer’s campuses.
Research Honors Program
All clinical research faculty are experienced research scientists with long-standing track records of publications and federally-funded studies. The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research has received more than 35 million dollars in external research grants for innovative and cutting edge chiropractic research.
The Research Honors Program gives students the opportunity to experience research and enhance their educational experience while in the Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) program. It allows them to design and complete a faculty-mentored research project.
