Life West  Discovery Events

In-person and digital events to help you discover the chiropractic field and the path into it.

Discovery events are all about creating & fostering discussions — discussions with current Life West students, practicing chiropractors and the faculty & admissions team here at Life West.  They’re about exploring the chiropractic field, digging into what it takes to follow this path into healthcare and helping you decide if this is your path to take.

Life West Discovery

4 distinctly unique events to discover Life West

Life West Discovery consists of 4 unique events: Discovery Nights, Discovery Digital, Discovery Weekend and Discovery at The WAVE.  Discovery Nights are hosted in local chiropractors’ offices around the country and provide and “Ask Me Anything” format for learning mroe about this healthcare field. Discovery Digital is a virtual exploration of Life West and Chiropractic for those looking to dig deeper into the path. Discovery Weekend and Discovery at The WAVE are both in-person events held here on campus and are deep dives into all things Life West with an emphasis on getting to know our culture.  While you’ll find similar themes across the four, each is designed to both stand-alone and compliment the others. In other words, you’re welcomed and encouraged to join us for one or join us for all three.

Various locations & dates

Are you curious what a career as a doctor of chiropractic really looks like? The science, the role, the patients, the outcomes, the hours, the income, the school or something else entirely? This is the perfect opportunity to learn more with a small group of like-minded explorers. Discovery Nights are held throughout the country and hosted by chiropractors (in their own office). Find a location near you or request something closer. We’ll either setup a Discovery Night near you or connect you with a DC one-on-one.

The WAVE is one of the world’s leading chiropractic conferences hosted by Life West each year.  Held here on-campus, chiropractic professionals from around the world will converge here in The Bay Area to listen to thought-leaders discuss the Science, Art & Philosophy of chiropractic care.  While we’ll, of course, create plenty of opportunities to explore Life West and meet with current students, faculty and staff, the goal for this event is to really immerse yourself in this field from the point of view of professionals working in it.

  • Students and patients considering, or curious about, a career in chiropractic

A few details for those coming to an in-person Discovery event

Pick a Weekend Early

Discovery Weekend & Discovery at The WAVE are held from Friday (10 am) to Saturday (roughly 2 pm).  We begin the event on Friday so you can meet our students and see the campus while class is in session. Many of our visitors choose to stay and spend some time sightseeing in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Seats are limited for Discovery events, so be sure to get your registration locked in as early as possible.

Fill out the registration form below and pick the weekend that works best for you. After you submit the form, our admissions team will contact you to confirm your travel plans, provide more details, and answer any questions you may have.

Costs & Guests

There is NO event cost for you and your guests to attend a Discovery event at Life West.  We’ll provide meals during the event and we’re typically able to help cover at least a portion of your travel costs for those living outside of The Greater Bay Area.  Again, our admissions team will connect with you once you’ve registered to work through those details.
