Looking for deeper education in the field of alternative health care? Look no further than Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. Founded in 1941, NHSU offers academic programs in chiropractic, Oriental medicine, acupuncture and more, with a focus on blending the science of health with the art of caring for patients. With less than 1000 in overall enrollment and student-to-faculty ratios of less than 10:1 in several areas, students here get excellent individual attention. Opportunities to gain hands-on experience in community-based settings include the Penny George Institute and the Salvation Army Harbor Light Center in surrounding Minneapolis. Further, NHSU’s clinical trials about muscle and skeletal conditions in the back and neck have earned the university more than $22 million in federal funding. And NHSU cares about its students’ well-being just as much as those of patients: it offers student clubs in meditation, yoga, soccer and endurance sports. Almost all students (95%) receive some form of financial aid, and continuing education courses are available online, to help graduates keep up with the latest trends in the industry. In so many ways, Northwestern Health Sciences University positively impacts Minnesota, the Midwest, and the world!
