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.

NBCE Licensing Exam Completion Rates

The following table depicts students who have completed all four parts of the NBCE exams within six months of graduation.

Texas Chiropractic College does not require students to take all four parts of the NBCE exams prior to graduation. Instead, students are allowed to take the Part III and IV exams on the pace that is most appropriate to each individual's timing and goals as related to beginning in chiropractic practice. The Part IV exam scores (see above) provide a more accurate depiction of success rates of TCC students as it includes students up to three years after graduation who are taking the exams for the first time.
