NCMIC, in conjunction with the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE), launched the Bucks for Boards program in 2020 to recognize the hard work and dedication of students working toward their Doctor of Chiropractic. All chiropractic students enrolled at a chiropractic college and DCs who graduated in the last six months are eligible.
“We understand the financial burden that can come with getting a great chiropractic education,” said Dr. Wayne Wolfson, President of NCMIC. “The Bucks for Boards program directly benefits students working toward a career in chiropractic with financial support. We are grateful to be able to help them along their journey in this way.”
Applying is easy: students complete a quick online form and hit submit. No essays, no references or complicated financial aid documents to fill out. Winners are drawn at random from those who enter each entry period. Students can sign up once per entry period and are eligible to win one NCMIC Bucks for Boards scholarship annually. Winners will be notified by email and/or phone.
Bucks for Boards is just one way NCMIC is taking care of future DCs. The Starting Into Practice® Program has held on-campus presentations for over 20 years to help prepare students for the transition from school into practice and a new website, launched in early 2021, gives students access to in-depth information about business, marketing, practice structures, finances and more. Starting Into Practice also has a supporting Facebook group where students can share ideas, ask questions and get advice from experts.
NCMIC was formed in 1946 by a group of doctors of chiropractic with the express purpose of offering malpractice insurance to DCs when no one else would. Delivering on its promise, We Take Care of Our Own® 2, NCMIC has grown to become the largest provider of chiropractic malpractice insurance in the nation and has expanded its offerings to include business and personal insurance, equipment loans, credit card processing, business credit cards, and premium financing. With more than 75 years’ experience and an “A” (Excellent) rating from industry analyst A.M. Best1, NCMIC is a company that DCs can rely on today and in the years to come.
