March 4, 2012 — One hundred percent of the D’Youville senior chiropractic students that took Part IV of the Chiropractic National Board Examination and Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board Part C in the fall of 2011 passed the tests and are now eligible to apply for licensure, according to college officials.
There were nine students that sat for the Part IV NBCE exam and five for the CCEB Part C. The national passing rate for this sitting of the Part IV exam was 90.7 percent and Part C was 79 percent.
D’Youville’s overall board results can be found on their website.
Both of these examinations are practical tests that examine candidate’s clinical skills through the use of Objective Structured Clinical Examinations. The NBCE exam is offered twice a year and the CCEB is offered three times annually.
“We are most pleased with outstanding pass rate exhibited by our students on this recent examination. Such an exceedingly successful pass rate speaks highly not only of the quality of instruction by our faculty, but also of the extreme dedication and hard work exhibited by our students,” said Dr. Stephen J. Zajac, associate clinical professor.
To meet the New York State educational requirements for licensure as a chiropractor an individual must have graduated from a Doctor of Chiropractic program accredited by the Council of Chiropractic Education and successfully complete the board examinations.
D’Youville started its multidisciplinary chiropractic program in 2004 and today enrolls 87 students.
