Graceland University's 3+1 Agreement with Palmer College

Exterior of Higdon Admin Building

Graceland Assistant Professor of Allied Health James Geiselman, DC, DACBN, MS, EMT-P, and Assistant Professor of Health and Movement Science Bryan Gatzke, MS, CSCS, PES, CES, recently attended Palmer College of Chiropractic’s Connection Day in Davenport, Iowa.

While there, they ran into alumna Katie (McLaughlin) '03 Hoyt, who is now a Research Program Manager at the Palmer Center of Chiropractic Research. Small world, big #GracelandFamily!

In February, Graceland signed a 3+1 agreement with Palmer College of Chiropractic allowing students the opportunity to take their first three years of coursework at Graceland University before entering the Doctorate of Chiropractic program at Palmer. Students can then transfer their first year of graduate school credit back to Graceland to complete their bachelor's degree.
