Parker University College of Chiropractic has partnered with Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Southwestern Regional Medical Center, in Tulsa, to provide a student internship program for Parker’s chiropractic students, where they will work alongside doctors and specialists to provide expert care for the patients they serve.
“This new internship program provides Parker’s students with a unique educational experience through exposure to a diverse cancer patient population,” says Steve Mackin, president and chief executive officer of CTCA at Southwestern Regional Medical Center. “We’re pleased to offer these learning experiences to future doctors interested in integrative health care approaches.”
CTCA provides integrative cancer care all under one roof, combining conventional treatments such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery with supportive therapies like pain management, nutrition, chiropractic care, naturopathic medicine and more. CTCA has board-certified physicians who have extensive experience in treating all cancer types, including advanced-stage diseases, as well as physicians who specialize in other fields, such as pulmonology, gastroenterology, and neurology. Parker students participating in the 11-week rotating internship will be exposed to these treatments, as well as the hospital’s cutting-edge technology.
