WPU Pens Partnership with Palmer Chiropractic for a 3+1 Program

William Penn University

OSKALOOSA, Iowa—William Penn University has penned a new dual-program partnership with Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Students pursuing their degree in Biology at William Penn University will have the opportunity to receive their Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degree in less time.

“This partnership with Palmer Chiropractic College offers our students a wonderful opportunity to advance their careers in healthcare with a highly respected professional program,” said Noel Stahle, William Penn University’s Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Students will spend three years at William Penn University, or the equivalent of 94+ credit hours, to fulfill the requirements for a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Earning these hours will allow the student to meet the prerequisite requirements for the intended study at Palmer College of Chiropractic. Once transferred to Palmer College, students will spend a minimum of five academic years (eight months each year).

The Palmer 3+1 Program is able to accelerate students’ path to beginning their chiropractic career. Rachael Trapp, a William Penn student, will begin her studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic this October. “I think this program is extremely beneficial to any student who is seriously interested in chiropractic,” said Trapp. “The atmosphere at Palmer is unique and this program allows students to perfect their craft at a fast pace.”

Rachael transferred to William Penn after a short stint at Coffeyville Community College. She spent two years at William Penn University and is elated to begin at Palmer. “I am looking forward to receiving the best education possible and learning more about the human body so that I can help people perform everyday activities pain and drug-free.”

Rachael says her inspiration to pursue a career in this field of study comes from her father, Dr. Conrad Trapp, who is also a Palmer College alum. “I can’t wait to follow in his footsteps,” said Trapp. She grew up watching him make a difference in his patient’s lives and cannot wait to do the same.
