I graduated as valedictorian of the Northwestern Health Sciences University (NWHSU) chiropractic class of 2016. After my first semester, I was asked by the Dean of the College of Chiropractic to be a tutor for other students. I served as a tutor for the rest of my academic life at NWHSU.
It has come to my attention in recent years that there is no small amount of criticism directed towards valedictorians. There is general sentiment that we have somehow “peaked,” that we have engaged in a largely self-serving endeavor, and that we rarely achieve true greatness. I’m dismayed by these conclusions. However, I do acknowledge that it is unfortunate to have learned so much in so few years and to let the knowledge slip away. I’ve created this section of my website to help others studying for these formidable board exams and to aid other chiropractors retain the knowledge that was deemed important enough to be included on said exams.
There are many test aids out there. Why is this one different? First and foremost, it’s free. Second of all, it’s a compilation of all the notes I used, wrote, and modified to not only pass, but excel, at boards. I did not use any test aids when I was studying for national boards. As I was taking these exams, I remember being unsure of only a few questions. I’ve walked away from testing rooms having known the answer every single question asked. Would you like to know what that’s like?
Please note that this is a work in progress. I’ll indicate on this page when I have completed uploading all of my notes. Also understand that these notes are likely much more than one is required to know for boards. But this project is a pursuit of knowledge and a demonstration of the academic rigor that is chiropractic school.
Let me know if any inaccuracies exist. I wish for this to be an interactive process, wherein the product becomes better, rather than antiquated, with time.
