GREELEY, Colo.— Timothy D. Stecher, DC, DACBR, CCSP participated in the Part II Test Committee on September 12-13, 2014, at the headquarters of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) in Greeley, Colo.
Dr. Stecher is a member of the faculty at University of Western States, and is a specialist in Diagnostic Imaging, one of six clinical science areas included on the NBCE Part II Examination. During the meeting, the test committee approved items to be used on future examinations that the NBCE will administer.
NBCE test committees create examinations according to the guidelines provided by the test plans. To ensure the fairness of the examination, these committees are composed of faculty members from various chiropractic colleges. Dr. Stecher was one of 18 test committee members who attended the meeting.
NBCE examinations are offered twice yearly at testing centers across the United States and in several foreign countries. The Part II Examination consists of 110 multiple-choice questions in each of the six clinical science areas: general diagnosis, neuromusculoskeletal diagnosis, diagnostic imaging, principles of chiropractic, chiropractic practice and associated clinical sciences. The Part II Examination is part of a battery of tests that candidates must pass prior to becoming licensed doctors of chiropractic. NBCE examinations are accepted for initial licensure in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The NBCE is the international testing organization for the chiropractic profession. Established in 1963, the NBCE develops, administers and scores standardized written examinations for candidates seeking chiropractic licensure throughout the United States and in several foreign countries.
