F.P.A.C., Davenport ’73, retired from
Palmer College in January.
“Serving the College in this capacity
has been a real privilege,” Dr. Burt says.
“However, with the demands of running
a multi-doctor clinic, I decided to place
all of my focus on patient care and the
administration of the practice. I’ll miss
serving the College and representing it
all over the nation and the world, but
it’s time to reduce my travel schedule
and focus my energies on my practice
and my family.”
Dr. Mickey Burt is well-known in the
profession as one of the most successful

“Given his professional responsibilities
and his growing family, Palmer has
been fortunate to keep him as long as
we did,” says Dennis Marchiori, D.C.,
Ph.D., Palmer College chancellor and
CEO. “We owe Mickey an enormous
debt of gratitude for leading our alumni
services for more than a dozen years.
His energy, ideas, optimism and commitment
have improved our program
and inspired the Palmer community.
I can’t say enough about how important
his friendship and advice has
been to me personally over the years.
I know he’ll remain a vibrant member
of the Palmer community.”
