Palmer College of Chiropractic 2014–15 Annual Report
To the Palmer Community,
It's my pleasure to share some of the many positive achievements of the College during the past year through the Palmer College of Chiropractic fiscal 2014-15 Annual Report.
As you read this "year in review" you'll see significant milestones on all three of our campuses, along with highlights of major events and accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff.
I'm very excited to share some insights from the
Gallup-Palmer inaugural report on Americans'
perceptions of chiropractic. The full results of this
landmark research will be shared at this year's Davenport
Homecoming in August.
The Annual Report also includes key charts and graphs that
help tell the Palmer story—such as student scholarships;
job opportunities and first-year employment rates; the
states and countries from which our students come; where
our graduates go to practice; chiropractic market share;
number of patients seen in our campus clinics; pro-bono
patient care offered in our clinics; and National Board of
Chiropractic Examiners exam pass rates.
Financial results will be posted after the close of the fiscal year.
I hope you join me in recognizing everyone involved in the outstanding work represented in this report. It illustrates how we advance our role as The Trusted Leader in Chiropractic Education.

Student Learning and Success
Leading the way
Our commitment to student success is demonstrated in a number of ways,
including curriculum and facilities enhancements, NBCE pass rates,
first-year employment rates, third-party endorsements and student achievements.
Not only are we the world leader in chiropractic research,
but Palmer strengthens the profession through the leadership
of our administrators, faculty and staff—including conducting
the first-ever Gallup-Palmer report on public perceptions of chiropractic.
Palmer Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D.,
responded to a
Wisconsin Chiropractic Association white paper that
advocated prescription rights be added to chiropractic
scope of care. Continuing his advocacy for the Palmer
Identity, Dr. Marchiori contended that prescription
rights aren't needed for chiropractors to fulfill their
role as primary care professionals for spinal health and well-being.
Furthering our Reach
Health care and service
Palmer students and employees engage our campus
communities and profession through service and patient care in the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics.
Building for the Future
Resources and support
The future outlook for Palmer is bright, thanks to
judicious use of human and financial resources in support of our mission.
