May 25, 2010 — New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) has received approval from the New York State Education Department to begin offering its new Master of Science in Human Anatomy and Physiology Instruction (MSHAPI) beginning January, 2011.
Delivered primarily online, the program is designed for Doctors of Chiropractic, other advanced healthcare degree holders, and biologists with graduate degrees. Its graduates will be well positioned to assume valuable teaching roles in colleges and universities.
“The MSHAPI approach is unique — it starts with a student already educated in anatomy and physiology course content and builds on that foundation, creating a highly trained instructional specialist for the undergraduate anatomy and physiology lecture room and laboratory,” said Dr. Michael Mestan, executive vice president of academic affairs at NYCC.
Chiropractic students attending any accredited chiropractic institution may apply to enroll after successfully completing their anatomy and physiology course work. The curriculum for almost all aspects of this new program will be delivered online (excluding a one week intensive teaching practicum held on the NYCC Seneca Falls campus).
