January 22, 2010 — Two New York Chiropractic College assistant professors recently earned clinical teaching privileges in the nation’s veteran’s hospital system.
Jean-Nicolas Poirier, DC, DACBR, CCPS and Chad Warshel, DC, DACBR are the first chiropractic radiologists to have received credentialing by the United States Veteran Affairs system to teach radiology to chiropractic students and residents enrolled in a Masters of Science Degree in Diagnostic Imaging residency.
At the Canandaigua Veteran Affairs Medical Center, Poirier, and Warshel will work with chiropractic doctors and review radiological images of their patients with NYCC interns and NYCC diagnostic imaging residents. Their appointments, which became effective in November, are for two years. They plan on beginning their work at the VA within a few weeks.
At NYCC, Poirier is director of the Master of Science in Diagnostic Imaging Residency Program and Warshel is an assistant professor in the department of Chiropractic Clinical Sciences. Both are expert chiropractic radiologists and provide imaging interpretation for practicing Doctors of Chiropractic through the college’s clinical radiology service.
This new arrangement will enhance the radiological experience of NYCC interns and residents by increasing the variety of conditions seen by the students using multiple advanced imaging modalities.
