New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) was founded in 1919 as the Columbia Institute of Chiropractic by Dr. Frank Dean, who served as the institution's first president for nearly 40 years. Located in New York City, the College grew through mergers with Columbia College of Chiropractic and Atlantic States Chiropractic Institute during the 1950s. Since then, the college has continued to expand, opening multiple health centers and research facilities.
NYCC offers the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program as well as several master's degrees in subjects relating to alternative medicine and holistic health. Certain post-graduate certificates and master's degrees are available in online formats.
