National University Of Health Sciences

The National University of Health Sciences, NUHS, was founded by John Fitz Allen Howard, D.C., in 1906, when it was known as the National School of Chiropractic. The name was changed to The National College of Chiropractic in 1920. It finally came to be known as National University of Health Sciences in 2000. The NUHS campus is situated in Lombard, Illinois.

NUHS offers a bachelor's degree in biomedical sciences, master's degrees in acupuncture, and oriental medicine, and doctorate degrees in chiropractic medicine, and naturopathic medicine.
