Doctors' Review
For these exams, we hold a special, very thorough Doctor's Program to prepare candidates to pass Part III or SPEC. This is a seven day class which will be held in the Atlanta, Georgia area, designed with the following in mind: 

  • Individuals who have been away from school for a number of years, and therefore not immersed in the material covered in the exams.
  • Those people who have previous unsuccessful attempts at passing the Part III exam.
  • Anyone who feels it would be beneficial to get the additional four days of material not offered in other locations.

We have a number of classes in other locations that offer a four day review designed primarily for students of chiropractic colleges taking the exam, but will be very helpful to doctors as well.

The National Board requires that a candidate be requested to take this exam by the individual state they are applying to for licensure. You should check with the state board to determine what their requirements will be. If you are allowed to take the SPEC, you will be directed to apply to the National Board at that time. Information from the National Board about the SPEC exam can be found on their website at 

For SPEC candidates taking their exam in April or October - You are invited to make arrangements with Dr. Gold to meet with her during Part IV sessions to refresh your knowledge immediately before taking your exam. Please send an email to to inquire about the additional schedule.

Repetition (Graduate registration only)
For additional assistance, if you would like to attend classes in more than one location to get the benefit of a repetition of the material you may do so during the same exam session at no charge. We suggest calling the office for help in scheduling.

For Part I, II, III and IV reviews, we are so certain that you will pass after taking our class that we offer this guarantee. If you do not pass you can take the class again in the next board session for a $75 re-enrollment fee (one time only). If you require a retake, please send a copy of your board scores in to us by mail or fax with a printed registration form .

Schedule and Venue
When we receive your registration, we will email you the full schedule for the program with the site(s) of the classes.
