        The application period is open for the July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 Integrated Clinical Practice Residency

        The VA chiropractic Integrated Clinical Practice residency focuses on the provision of chiropractic care in an integrated healthcare system, collaborating with primary care, medical and surgical specialties, and other medical and associated health providers and trainees.

        The residencies provide advanced clinical training in complex case management, allowing recent graduates to increase their scope and depth of clinical knowledge, experience and acumen. Residents are mentored by senior VA chiropractors who are national leaders in integrated chiropractic practice.
