Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Parker University, a health sciences institution located in Dallas, Texas, recently launched a new website designed for those interested in a career in natural health care. The website, http://www.parker.edu/future, features videos, statistics, and general information about the university’s diverse programs in anatomy, chiropractic, massage therapy, and health and wellness.
Parker’s chiropractic college and massage school offer hands-on education for students interested in serving others and making a greater impact on the world through careers in health science. The website highlights what it’s like as a chiropractic college or massage school student.
A career in high demand, chiropractic, is the nation’s third largest primary health care profession, surpassed only by practitioners of medicine and dentistry. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics recently projected that jobs in chiropractic will increase 28 percent by 2020 – placing the field of chiropractic at a much faster growth rate than most professions.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of massage therapists is expected to grow by 20 percent by 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. Continued growth in the demand for massage services will lead to new openings for massage therapists.
“The growth of the two professions is driven by an upward trend and popularity in holistic health care,” said Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker University. “Many Americans are demanding natural options for their health and we are educating students to meet that huge demand.”
Parker University is a great place to begin anew for people who are currently jobless, underemployed and looking for a new career, or returning from military service.
The chiropractic college offers a professional curriculum with a balance of classroom, research, business, and clinical education. Doctor of chiropractic students receive an extensive education including advanced chiropractic business and practice building courses, clinical experience in the first trimester, and practical training in many areas of study.
Parker’s massage school is a 600-hour program including over 320 hours of education in the science of therapeutic bodywork and over 200 hours of classroom, lab, and clinical courses. The program prepares students to contribute to the health and wellness of any client. The massage school also offers a medical massage advanced training program created to meet the demands of the growing massage and health care industries.
