CIRCA 2008-2009

The American Board of Chiropractic Internists (ABCI) is a non-profit, tax-exempt professional certification board and credentialing agency. The ABCI advances the quality of clinical competency for doctors of chiropractic specializing in diagnosis and treatment of internal disorders through certification and recertification of those doctors who demonstrate excellence in the chiropractic internist practice.

Consistent with the ABCI Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, the ABCI shall promote the advancement of chiropractic internal medicine by identifying to professionals and the public those chiropractors who have voluntarily sought and obtained certification in chiropractic internal medicine.

In a world of rapidly evolving technology, chiropractic practices can benefit immensely from the myriad new devices, techniques, and especially with the help of specialized custom application development via rtslabs.com, creating tools designed to serve the needs of this industry. Custom software approaches to medicine in general go far beyond billing, scheduling, and bookkeeping. Software solutions are paired with 3D printing to create highly personalized tools and patient aids, while at the same time permitting patients to monitor their on health status. Over the next few months, we will be updating this site to make it more informative and user friendly. In the meantime, if there is a broken link or missing pdf file on our download page, please be patient.

Thank you

Candidate testing for Part I, Part II, and Part III of the board examination is held:

4th weekend of April
3rd weekend of October
