Frequently Asked Questions
What does DABCI stand for?
- DABCI is an acronym – Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists
What “is” a DABCI?
- A DABCI is a practitioner who has completed at least 300 hours of course work approved by the Counsel of Diagnostics and Internal Disorders. They have also successfully completed all board requirements to receive their DABCI certificate.
Does having a DABCI expand my scope of practice?
- At this current time holding a Diplomate, of any kind, does not expand your scope of practice. It does however instill the confidence and proficiency to allow you to utilize your full scope. Many states have a broad scope of practice for a licensed Chiropractor. It is often under utilized either due to lack of knowledge of the law, or hesitation to pursue available services and procedures due to inadequate training. We feel that the DABCI University program is one of the most comprehensive and thorough Diplomates available to date.
Who teaches the program?
- Dr. William Kleber and Dr. Brett Wisniewski direct the DABCI University Online; they can be reached directly at 970-532-2755. The teachers in the program have been hand selected by Dr. William Kleber for their extensive knowledge on a specific subject and their active role in clinical practice. Dr. Kleber was adamant about choosing teachers who follow the “practice what you preach” model as he feels this give the most accurate representation of scientific literature in clinical practice. Too often programs are put on and are purely academic—this makes it very difficult to transition the information into use at a clinical level; this is NOT the case with DABCI University Online.
I see other DABCI programs in other parts of the country, are they the same?
- There are other DABCI programs being put on by ProHealth Seminars in other states. These programs still provide CDID approved course hours but are separate from the Online DABCI series. We do work closely with ProHealth Seminars for those students who miss one of our classes and need to make it up; we can help you find a location for you to make up those hours.
I am a DC student when can I start the DABCI program?
- NOW! It is never too early to start the Florida DABCI program and enrolling as a student entitles you to a discount even after you graduate! If you feel like you will be overwhelmed with information since you do not practice yet, don’t be. Nearly 40% of our class are Chiropractic students all of which have given up great feedback on how it helps with their board exams and helped them stand out from their classmates. Some students have also found jobs in the DABCI course from practicing Doctors taking the program.
What disciplines can take the DABCI program?
- Any student or licensed professional in the healthcare field is welcome to take the program. Although the program was originally produced for the chiropractic profession, there is little content in the DABCI program about the subluxation complex and chiropractic adjustment - although important, we feel students of the program are already well-versed in this facet of the profession. We concentrate on blood chemistry analysis, functional medicine approaches to complex cases, nutrition and so much more than can benefit nearly any healthcare practitioner!
- DC, MDs, NP, RN, Dieticians and more are all welcome!
NOTE: only DCs would be eligible for the DABCI certificate.

Can I go back and watch the recording again?
- Yes, the content will be may available for some time after you have completed watching the session (this timeline is TBD)
In what order am I supposed to take the course?
- Ideally it would be best to take the program in the order it has been designed. We understand that you may not be interested in each session or a certain topic might be more appropriate for your current practice. Feel free to jump around as you wish.
Do I have to take the entire program?
- The ENTIRE program has so much to offer from clinical pearls to national recognized speakers so we do encourage you to take the entire program and we would love to see more doctors sit for the DABCI boards! With that being said, you can take 1 or all of the sessions, whatever you would like, at any time anywhere in the world that has internet access!
Is there a website where I can learn more info?
- The website is currently under construction and should be available shortly.
