A master’s degree in sports medicine is a natural fit for chiropractic physicians and other health care professionals who desire a specialty practice working with athletes. A sports medicine master’s degree can open up opportunities to work with various sports teams (high school, collegiate and professional) and in sports-related facilities. In addition, this degree provides appropriate credentials for teaching in higher-education settings.
UWS chiropractic students can concurrently enroll in the sports medicine program, saving time and money. If a student enrolls in the sports medicine program in 6th quarter, they can finish the DC and sports medicine programs together.
Offered online, this program also requires hands-on lab sessions at the UWS campus in Portland, Oregon, or students can arrange their practicum hours with a supervisor in their area.
