West Palm Beach, FL – Jan. 28, 2019 – Keiser University College of Chiropractic Medicine (KUCCM) has been awarded initial accreditation by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE), an important recognition of the quality of education and care provided by the college. Keiser University’s Doctor of Chiropractic program combines classroom learning with an emphasis on contemporary research and hands-on practical experience at the university’s West Palm Beach campus. This evidence-based program prepares students with the skills and knowledge they need to care for patients of all ages.

“We are extremely pleased to receive this accreditation, which is a testament to the experience of our faculty and the dedication of our students,” said Chancellor Arthur Keiser, Ph.D. “Our College of Chiropractic Medicine brings together some of the nation’s top doctors and most sophisticated technology to offer our students an excellent education and clinical practice.”

The accreditation follows a site visit and review of performance indicators such as retention rates, academic support, clinical competency outcomes, student performance, and planning and budgeting processes. The Council conducted deliberations and reached a consensus decision to award initial accreditation to Keiser University’s Doctor of Chiropractic program. Accrediting bodies evaluate educational practices and associated outcomes based on best practices to ensure that graduates are competent to provide high-quality, safe, and effective care for their patients.

“I am extremely proud of our faculty and students who share with me a commitment to excellence in chiropractic education, “said Dr. Mike Wiles, Dean of the College of Chiropractic Medicine. “The process of achieving initial accreditation has been rigorous, instructive and constructive for the College of Chiropractic Medicine, and we are very excited to join the community of accredited Doctor of Chiropractic programs in the US.”

CCE is the national accrediting agency for Doctor of Chiropractic Accreditation in the United States. Accreditation provides assurances of educational quality and institutional integrity to governments, jurisdictional licensing and regulatory bodies, institutions, professional organizations, students, other accrediting agencies, and the public.

Mrs. Percy and Mr. Williams believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. And Mrs. Crawford from student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. She was dedicated to my overall success.

Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.

The two instructors that have impacted my life are Mr. Williams and Mrs. Percy. Both of them believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. I appreciate their motivation to get me to where I am today.

Justin Pugh

Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.

Ryan Bushey

If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.

The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.

Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose.  The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.

Connie Sue Centrella

It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University.  Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors.  The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.

Annelise Merriner, PA-C

Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made.  The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly.  The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.

Dedrick Saxon

I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you.  I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.

Natalie Dou

After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education.  Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.

Laurie Williams

Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.

Nadege Dor

My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.

Marla Hadley

The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.

I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
