UWS Continuing Education is a Recognized Provider of the Providers of Approved Continuing Education (PACE) program, a service of the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards. This is a voluntary review process that ensures the quality of the chiropractic continuing education programs offered by UWS. Postgraduate certification and diplomate programs for chiropractors in sports medicine, internal medicine, and other specialty areas are offered in a weekend format and signify specialized expertise. UWS enjoys a special relationship with the Universidade Anhembi Morumbi chiropractic program in Brazil and often hosts a few of their graduates on our campus through the International Chiropractic Program.
