Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida Celebrates Opening of New Academic Building
Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida celebrates 20 years in Port Orange, Florida
(Port Orange, Florida) – Twenty years ago, Palmer Florida welcomed its first students onto campus. Now, Palmer Florida celebrates the opening of a fourth academic building to meet rising enrollment demands. This comes as Palmer College, the founding institution of chiropractic, celebrates another big milestone – its 125th anniversary.
The 47,000 sq. ft. building will accommodate up to 130 students. The space includes classrooms, technique rooms where students will learn and practice the hands-on care they’ll deliver after graduation, a larger anatomy learning environment, and virtual- and augmented-reality learning tools. The new labs are designed specifically for students to apply what they’re learning about movement science and rehabilitation in an ideal, technologically advanced setting.
“When we designed the fourth building at Palmer Florida, we tried to imagine not only what the students of today need, but what will serve students for decades to come,” said Peter Martin, D.C., Palmer Florida campus president. “The space is designed to support all aspects of the student learning experience – from providing the most advanced technology in the classrooms, to spaces that foster collaboration and will encourage students to discuss and study what they’re learning in class. This new building allows us to expand as a college, and have more of an impact on the profession, the community, and future patients.”
Construction began in late 2020 and was completed in early 2022. More than 850 students are currently enrolled at Palmer Florida and more than 2,100 across Palmer’s three campuses.
This project is made possible by generous donations from alumni and friends of the College.
