Educational Outcomes

Goals for Student Achievement and Student Success

The focus of TCC’s mission is to educate practice-ready doctors of chiropractic. One way this is accomplished is by identifying the necessary student competencies in The TCC Graduate: An Educational Blueprint for the 21st Century which will lead to success. This report was initially developed in 2007 and expands on the competencies required by the Council on Chiropractic Education. There are currently nine meta-competencies that provide the framework for this document and the foundation for identifying student success.

Measures of student achievement, including the NBCE results expanded below, are available here.

National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Performance

As a part of the educational experience and as required by most states for jurisdictional licensure, TCC students participate in a series of examinations administered by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. These exams are divided into four parts beginning with knowledge in the basic sciences and ending with evaluation of practical clinical knowledge and skill.
