Marietta, Georgia – January 20, 2022 – Life University (Life U) celebrated 91 students at a Clinic Gateway ceremony on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at the Cobb Galleria Centre. The event marked a milestone for the students as they begin the clinical phase of their educations.

“Clinic Gateway is such an incredible opportunity to celebrate our Doctor of Chiropractic students as they make the transition from classroom and lab learning to rendering care under our mentor doctors in the clinical setting,” said Assistant Director of Clinics Dr. Robert Love. “We are so proud to honor their work and this tremendous achievement as we fellowship with them in an evening of fun, food and connection!”

In their eight quarter, Life University D.C. students begin Level I of their clinic experience as interns at the Campus Center for Health and Optimal Performance (CC-HOP), located in the William M. Harris Center for Clinical Education. At CC-HOP, students work closely with highly experienced Life U faculty members to develop their techniques as they provide chiropractic services to their fellow Life U students.

Beginning in their 10th quarter, D.C. students move to Level II of their clinical education by treating patients at the Center for Health and Optimal Performance (C-HOP), the public outpatient clinic located on the LIFE campus. During their 13th and 14th quarters, students transition to Level III and, if they qualify, have the added option of interning at the Life Chiropractic Clinics in Midtown Atlanta and Marietta or in the office of a Life University extension faculty member elsewhere in the U.S. or internationally through the Practice, Excellence, Art and Knowledge (PEAK) program.
