Drs. Skip and Julie Wyss: Why recruit students?
Drs. Skip and Julie Wyss have been running their pediatric practice since
2008 and recruiting students to Palmer since they opened their doors. They
also advise a pre-chiropractic club at a local university and mentor students
from the undergraduate program through their chiropractic education and
into practice. The passion and commitment they have for the future of chiropractic, and specifically Palmer,
They see many students who have little direction in their future career paths. The ones interested in a health
care career usually look to physical or occupational therapy. However, those students to them are future
chiropractors … they just don’t know it yet. Drs. Skip and Julie believe these young minds are looking for
something other than traditional medicine to help people achieve better health, and they take helping students
realize their chiropractic potential as their personal duty.
“Today’s students are the future of chiropractic. We want you to have a say in who attends Palmer and who
will help strengthen the profession,” says Executive Director for Alumni Mickey Burt, D.C.
