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 degree. Chiropractic students enrolled at a chiropractic college and DCs who graduated in the last six months are eligible to win.

“It’s always been the commitment of NCMIC since it was founded 76 years ago to find ways we can help the profession,” said Dr. Wayne Wolfson, President of NCMIC. “In 1946, we only had one product and that was malpractice insurance. As NCMIC grew, we found out what the needs of chiropractors were, and we answered the call. Bucks for Boards is an extension of that.”

Applying is easy: students complete a quick online form and hit submit. No essays, no references or complicated financial aid documents are required. 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.

NCMIC provides other resources for future DCs, too. 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.
