The Institution:
New York Chiropractic College is committed to academic excellence, quality patient care, and professional leadership.

New York Chiropractic College was founded in 1919 as the Columbia Institute of Chiropractic, in a Manhattan brownstone. In the 70's the College moved from New York City to Long Island, opening a 50-acre campus in Old Brookville. Being unable to expand its physical plant, the College moved 300 miles to Seneca Falls, NY. The campus is situated in the Finger Lakes region of New York State and is nestled on a 286-acre site next to Cayuga Lake. While initially a school of chiropractic, NYCC has expanded to a multi-program institution offering additional degrees in response to demands in healthcare education. New York Chiropractic College runs on a trimester system with a total of 936 students enrolled in on-ground and online programs.

NYCC promotes an environment of academic excellence that leads to the development of future professionals who understand how to be leaders in delivering best clinical practices associated with their chosen discipline. NYCC has developed four core competencies that have helped shape our reputation and support progress towards our mission, vision, and values:

  • Rigorous academics based on the continuous improvement model
  • Innovative clinical education models
  • Strong student support mechanisms
  • Responsive program development
