Palmer College of Chiropractic Expands DoD / VA Internship Affiliations

With the recent announcement of an academic affiliation with the Martinsburg VA Medical Center in Martinsburg, W.V., Palmer College of Chiropractic's Department of Defense / Veterans Affairs (DoD / VA) Chiropractic Internship Program has grown to include 14 facilities.

The staff chiropractor at Martinsburg is Shawn Neff, DC, a 2003 graduate of Palmer's Davenport campus, and the first intern in the program is expected to begin later this year.

Palmer's DoD / VA Chiropractic Internship Program provides senior-level interns from all three Palmer campuses with an opportunity to work alongside a staff doctor of chiropractic located in a Department of Defense military treatment facility or a Veterans Affairs medical center. The intern gains valuable insight into how the DC works with health professionals from other disciplines to benefit patients. Interns provide chiropractic care and, depending on the location, may also rotate among other departments, observing procedures and interacting with medical interns or residents.

Facilities with which Palmer College has a memorandum of understanding or academic affiliation include seven under the Veterans Health Administration and seven in the Department of Defense. These facilities are located throughout the United States in 11 different states.
