Cleveland University’s Overland Park campus is historically inducted into the chiropractic program

Cleveland University, which has a Kansas City campus in Overland Park, had its largest fall enrollment at the university’s College of Chiropractic in 38 years.

In its record enrollment announcement last week, the university noted that 103 students started their PhD in chiropractic in the fall. Incoming students come from all over the country, from California to West Virginia.

“Graduates are growing steadily as more graduates enroll in doctoral programs immediately after graduation in the spring,” said Melissa Denton, director of admissions at the university. “Students are beginning to see that the doctor of chiropractic is attractive to those who want to help others stay healthy. People want to be proactive in maintaining good health, and chiropractic care is an affordable health care option that is vital to that goal. “
