The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research (PCCR) is committed to mentoring the next generation of chiropractic clinicians and researchers through our Research Honors Program and our Post-doctoral Research Scholar training opportunities.
The Research Honors Program is designed to provide an expanded educational experience while participating in scientific research, recognize outstanding research scholarship, and expose students to research career possibilities.
The PCCR’s Post-doctoral Research Scholar position emphasizes scholarship and provides research training for doctors of chiropractic under the direction and supervision of faculty mentors in preparation for research careers.
