Sports fan finds a home in master’s program

Bradley Capp DCAfter running a biology lab at the University of Oregon while completing his Bachelor’s degree in general science, Bradley Capp applied for a research scholarship at the University of Western States. Though he was contemplating attending a physical therapy school, he took a deeper look atUWS.

The freedom and range of the chiropractic career appealed to Capp, and he applied. As a chiropractic student and sports fan, he enrolled in the Masters in Sports and Exercise Science program.

“If you enjoy what you do, it makes it much easier,” he said. Capp especially enjoyed the opportunities within the Masters program to apply his skills.

With the Master’s program, Capp is looking forward to earning his Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP), Diplomate American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP), and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists (CSCS).

Capp graduated this past quarter as valedictorian. He plans to seek an associateship in and work with athletes, though he said his experience in the Masters program prepares him to perform as a practitioner for all patients.
