The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced the inaugural selections to the VA’s new Chiropractic Care Residency Training Program, which include San Jose campus alumna Amanda Dluzniewski, D.C., ’13.

The pilot program will be located at five VA health centers throughout the U.S. Dr. Dluzniewski began her assignment at Canandaigua VA Medical Center in New York in July. Her primary duties are to provide full diagnostic and management services of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions under the mentorship of the three attending D.C.s.

“The program at Palmer’s San Jose campus produces the elite, and my Palmer experience was nothing short of amazing,” she says. “I wouldn’t have this opportunity were it not for the education I received and all of the amazing extra-curricular opportunities and unique learning experiences available to Palmer San Jose students.”

Prior to graduating, she completed a rotation in the Palmer VA/DoD Internship program with David Paris, D.C., San Jose ’01, at the VA outpatient clinic in Redding, Calif.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve a patient population that truly loves chiropractic care, and I believe chiropractic will continue to expand within the DoD and VA health care systems,” she adds.
