Coming soon!! Associate degree in Health and Wellness
In August of 2017, our current Chiropractic Specialist program will transition to an associate degree in Health and Wellness. Applications are being accepted during the transition!
The Chiropractic Specialist program at MPTC has been an active and successful program for the past 20 years and has been the only one in the state. Over time, the Chiropractic field has experienced a passionate shift encompassing a greater health and wellness emphasis.
This shift has provided MPTC the opportunity to revamp our current program to meet the demands of our hiring district. The Health and Wellness career field is expected to offer much faster-than-average job growth through 2020. To respond to this change in focus and career demand, MPTC is in the process of transitioning the Chiropractic Specialist to a Health and Wellness program starting in fall of 2017.
The program will be an innovative use of programming which capitalizes on the career pathway movement. The program will be comprised of a progressive career ladder transitioning from a Health and Wellness Customer Service Representative certificate --> Health and Wellness Technician technical diploma --> Health and Wellness associate degree.
As a student moves toward completion of the program, he/she can become certified as a Chiropractic Technician, Chiropractic Radiographic Technician, ACE Health/Wellness Coach, ACE Personal Trainer expanding our graduate’s options for employment opportunities and career growth.
