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.
“Most people rely on some kind of financial aid to offset the rising costs of their education. Bucks for Boards can help,” said Dr. Wayne Wolfson, President of NCMIC. “At some point, I think students wonder, ‘What's the catch?’ But there is no catch. We want to be able to help in whatever way possible. With Bucks for Boards, students can utilize that money in whatever way works best for them.”
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 award 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.
