    CCAT: Chiropractic MCAT version

    Advertisements



    http://www.nbce.org/ccat/index.html

    Chiropractic College Aptitude Test: CCAT

    What CCAT Provides
    CCAT provides the prospective student and his/her chiropractic college with measures of ability in mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics.
    The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) specifically designed CCAT as a tool for the student, in conjunction with academic counseling, to use in making academic decisions.
    CCAT is an important tool for a prospective studentís benefit because the results are highly correlated with success in chiropractic college.
    How CCAT Is Used

    CCAT results are used in a variety of ways that help ensure success in a chiropractic curriculum. Through early identification of superior performance or potential risk factors associated with academic difficulty, the student and an academic advisor can efficiently and proactively bolster his/her pre-chiropractic academic preparation, or after enrollment in chiropractic college, take specific classes to enhance academic success.
    Why CCAT?

    • Would you like to know if you have the problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills necessary for successful completion of a rigorous scientific curriculum?

    • Would you like to know if a particular subject area requires additional preparation?

    • Before you commit to student loans, would you like an assessment that correlates with successful completion of chiropractic college course work?
    How to Prepare for CCAT

    You will be asked to provide some demographic information concerning the university or college you attended, including:
    • Private or public institution
    • 2 or 4 year program
    • Degree obtained
    • Total semester hours completed
    • Overall GPA
    • Number of hours completed and GPA for:
      • Biology
      • Chemistry
      • Physics
      • Mathematics
      • Language Arts
    You will be asked to respond to 100 multiple-choice questions in the areas of mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics. In each of these areas you will be asked basic questions. These are subjects that you have likely studied in your undergraduate courses. In many cases, your high school course work in these subjects will provide you the necessary background to perform satisfactorily on the exam.
    CCAT Specifications

    • CCAT is a Web-based, multiple-choice examination.
    • CCAT will require approximately one and one half hours to complete.
    • Immediately upon completion of CCAT you will receive a score report.
    • A score report is sent to the chiropractic college that makes arrangements for your assessment.
    How to Register for CCAT

    Contact the Enrollment Office at a chiropractic college to make arrangements for your assessment.

    Not Yet

    I do not know as of yet, I have not taken the MCAT yet. I plan to do so later on. I have taken practice MCATs so I know kinda what it is like. Sorry wish I knew more to tell you. I can tell you I am studying the kaplan MCAT book I have to prepare, but I think it is going to be much easier than that. We shall see.

    Why do you need to take this? I applied to Life university for D.C. and they don't require any test.

    Many of the upper level schools that are more science based are using the CCAT as part of the admissions process. Once it has enough statistical evidence to be proven an accurate measure of student's success, everyone will have to take it. The NCBE is trying to help move the profession forward by raising standards. I am glad they are doing it, but I wish I didn't have to take it.

    MCAT Versions: NDs to use MCAT soon

    Think the NDs will soon start to implement the MCAT...
    So far, MD/DO/DPM programs are all using the MCAT as a screen.

    I read that the Naturopathic profession is also moving forward to adopt the MCAT as a screening tool.....why wouldn't the DC programs just adopt the MCAT ? instead of coming with something new like the CCAT ? I suppose they want to mirror the Dentist DAT exam ? and use the CCAT funds solely for the NBCE ?

    Its a profession thats always wanted to be autonomous. Again they do not want to be swallowed up by the Medical profession

    the autonomous effect

    in 1997 i met a fellow DC who was fully committed to leaving chiro after 7 yrs of practice; which he did in 2000 (took him 3 yrs to prepare to leave). after experiencing a slow but convincing downturn of revenue year after year (no matter how hard he worked or what he did) he "saw the handwriting on the wall". still its a big leap to go offshore i said. he replied, "i know that i am meant to be an md". he went on to explain how he knew several other DCs (all more experienced than he) who had already closed their practices. 2 of them had become teachers. in 2004 after he had finished med school and started his residency i asked him how easy was it to lock your chiro door for the last time. his reply was "easier than you would think." and "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em". during all of those years i made good money (i was in a different state) so leaving was not on the front burner for me. this year has convinced me to go a different direction; which i am looking forward to. i have always wanted to coach so my change has been sealed. his change was to become an MD and he is practicing out west. i guess we lost our "purpose".
