The New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls announced Tuesday it will partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs in a new, full-time, year-round, paid chiropractic residency program slated to begin this coming July. Residents in the VA program will hone vital clinical skills as senior VA chiropractors mentor the hands-on training in Canandaigua and Buffalo — two of only five sites to be awarded such residencies nationwide, according to a release from the Chiropractic College.
Receiving annual salaries ranging from $36,000 and $43,000, based on geographic location, the residents will do clinical educational rotations through such services as primary care, medical or surgical specialties, mental health, and rehabilitation disciplines. The residents will also participate in a variety of scholarly activities, giving and attending academic and research presentations at the VA facility and its affiliates.
The program will be administered nationally by VAs Office of Academic Affiliations and locally by the participating VA facility.
