Part of the mission of the Rhode Island Spine
Center is to provide classroom and experiential training for
chiropractic and medical physicians regarding the art and science
of the modern approach to caring for patients with spine-related disorders.
Chiropractic interns perform externships at the Spine Center, and
periodically residents from the Internal Medicine Departments of Rhode
Island Hospital and Memorial Hospital have rotated through to learn
about our methods of diagnosing and treating back
pain and headaches. Dr. Donald Murphy
is on the clinical faculty of Alpert Medical School of Brown University,
teaching about the diagnosis and treatment of neck and back problems.
