Senior Director of Clinics Administration Julie Schrad, D.C., has announced that the Martinsburg VA Medical Center in Martinsburg, West Virginia, is now an academic affiliate of Palmer College. The staff chiropractor at Martinsburg is Shawn Neff, D.C., a 2003 Davenport Campus graduate. 

Dr. Neff is currently reviewing the eligible student pool and is expected to accept his first Palmer intern later this year. He is looking forward to working with the College to further the clinical education of our students. The website for the Martinsburg VA Medical Center is www.martinsburg.va.gov.

With the addition of Dr. Neff and the Martinsburg VA Medical Center, Palmer now has 14 academic affiliations with Department of Defense and Veteran’s Affairs healthcare facilities around the country, involving 14 doctors of chiropractic. Some 30 Palmer students are projected to participate in DOD or VA internships during the 2012-13 fiscal year.
