Few health careers are as flexible as that of the chiropractic profession. Typically, a chiropractor is self-employed; so for students who love helping others and making a good income but also want to keep their options open when it comes to hours and location, a chiropractic career can be an ideal destination. Take the first step to getting there at MTSU.
All of MTSU's Health Science Pre-Professional Programs require a good amount of shadowing—of following and observing professionals in the field as they go through the daily routine. For many students, this requirement is also the experience that cements their determination to pursue their career of choice. Shadowing allows beginners to see, smell, hear, and feel what happens during a day on the job.
Pre-Scripts is a pre-professional organization for students pursuing careers in the health sciences. The organization brings in local pharmacists, physicians, physical therapists, and other health care professionals, as well as representatives of schools and the armed services, to provide students firsthand insights into the different health science careers and valuable information about applying for health professional schools and programs. Pre-Scripts in also involved in community service projects and organizes trips to professional schools. (The organization meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.)
