May 20, 2014 – Kate Craig, DC, an April 2014 graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University, has been selected for a chiropractic residency at the St. Louis VA Healthcare System. The position is one of five around the country in the newly created VA Chiropractic Care Residency Program.
This is the first year of the VA Chiropractic Residency Program, which will provide post graduate training to prepare chiropractors for advanced practice while working in an interdisciplinary environment. Depending on the location, residents may do rotations in primary care, extended care, physical medicine and rehab, pain clinic, interdisciplinary pain rehab, spinal cord injury/dysfunction, neurology and radiology.
Craig is eager to be part of an integrated care team providing chiropractic care needed by many veterans. She is also looking forward to the chance to connect with other health care providers, learn from them and help teach them about chiropractic.
“I am beyond excited for this opportunity,” Craig said. “Chiropractors have the tools to help a lot of patients and are an asset to the healthcare system.”
