New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) is a private alternative health college in Seneca Falls, New York. It has graduate programs in areas such as chiropractic, acupuncture and oriental medicine, and health sciences and education.

It is one of 18 chiropractic colleges in the United States.


The school was founded in New York City as Columbia Institute of Chiropractic by chiropractor Frank Dean in 1919. In 1989, unable to expand in Long Island, NYCC purchased the former Eisenhower College campus in Seneca Falls, New York. After two years of renovations the college moved to the Seneca Falls campus in 1991.


NYCC, a mixed chiropractic and Oriental medicine institution, continues to expand and introduce new programs. In addition to a D.C. program, the college now offers programs in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, clinical nutrition, diagnostic imaging, anatomy, and human anatomy & physiology instruction.


The college also runs 3 community clinics in:

In addition, the school is affiliated with the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland and Veterans Hospitals in Rochester, New York, Buffalo, New York, Canandaigua, New York, Bath, New York, and Miami, Florida.

NYCC also has a partnership with the addition treatment program Bridge Back to Life,[2] founded by neurologist and addiction medicine specialist Russell Surasky.[3]
