Chiropractic Students 100 Percent Successful on Boards
Buffalo, New York – February 21, 2012 – 100 percent of the D'Youville senior chiropractic students that took the Chiropractic National Board Examination and the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board Part C in the fall of 2011 have passed the tests and are now eligible to apply for licensure, according to college officials.
Nine students sat for Part 4 and five students for Part C of the examination. The national percentage of those successfully passing Part 4 was 90.7 percent and Part C was 79 percent.
"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.
The National Board of Chiropractic Exam is given twice a year and the Canadian Chiropractic Boards three times a year.
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.
