Dr. Michael J. “Dusty” McCourt
Raised in Centralia, Washington, Dr. Michael McCourt was brought up to be a concert and jazz trombonist, yet yielded to his desires to adventure in his early twenties. He did everything from being a lift operator in Vail, Colorado to joining the Army and serving as both an Airborne Artilleryman and a trombonist for the 82nd Airborne Band.
After this stint, he returned and finished undergraduate training in foreign language and outdoor recreation and then worked in the high mountain desert teaching adolescents wilderness survival skills. It was during this time that he became interested in medicine.
In medical school he excelled academically and was a presidential scholar. He graduated cum laude and did his residency training at one of the most highly regarded foot and ankle residencies in the country: Kaiser San Francisco.
