Palmer is the best school for chiropractic care. It is where chiropractic started. Not only would you get a great education but you learn the history and philosophy of the the school and its founders. You get to work with professors who have tons of experience and are well skilled.

Palmer offers a very high quality of education and is a prestigious institution. While the workload is heavy, I know that it will make me the best chiropractor that I can be. I am inspired to learn all that I can, thanks to the professors and my classmates. Palmer has a very positive learning environment and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to attend!

The course load is a lot of work in the beginning and some what hard to get used to, but after time and adjusting habits it gets easier. The professors are knowledge in their areas and help whenever possible.

The program at Palmer is extremely challenging, requires a significant amount of time inside and outside of class, and is very well respected around the world. There are many clubs to join, a great career network, and wonderful people all around campus that want to help you succeed. The only con, in my opinion, is that there is very little time for extracurriculars in the first year. I'm very grateful to be a part of this program and I hope that it will take me great places once I graduate.

While they may be a little unnecessarily stuck in past traditions, Palmer also allows itself enough forward movement to stay relevant in the profession. There is a lot of focus on technique, though there could be more in-school practice. They teach you what you need to learn to get started, and give a very good, broad base of knowledge. I'm halfway through the program, and wish I could remember every bit of information I've been told! Overall, I'm happy with my choice in this school.

Palmer is the leader in Chiropractic education. It is a great place to learn, the staff is friendly and always supportive and helpful. The only real con has been the lag in keeping up with technology. The computers in the library are old and slow, and only recently have they gotten wifi. The wifi they do have is unreliable and inconsistent most of the time. Other than that it is a wonderful college and it has a great atmosphere to learn and grow in.

I am originally from a large city on the west coast, but I made the decision to come to Palmer in Iowa given that it is the fountainhead of chiropractic. It was the best decision I have ever made and I strongly encourage anyone interested in Chiropractic to visit Palmer. Palmer boasts some of the best instructors in the field, and the professors are always available for students outside of the classroom. Unfortunately there is not much diversity on campus but the students have an incredibly close network with each other. The school offers little financial aid in the form of scholarships but loans are accessible. The Davenport community is small but Palmer is well recognized and takes an active role in the community. There is tons of organizations and clubs for students to join so it is easy to get involved. Plus cost of living is cheap in Iowa. Overall, it's a wonderful school.
