Dr. Burr received his undergraduate education at Utah State University studying Psychology and Chemistry. He completed a Ph.D. in Psychology at Brigham Young University and a clinical neuropsychology internship at Hahnemann University Hospital. Dr. Burr then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at Dartmouth Medical School in New Hampshire. While there, he specialized in neuropsychology of epilepsy and brain tumors. He collaborated on development of a functional brain imaging laboratory with emphasis on fMRI. Upon completion of his fellowship, he worked for short period in private practice before joining the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Utah where he worked in pre-operative planning in epilepsy and brain tumor patients and developed an fMRI program. Dr. Burr remained at the University of Utah until 2001 when he again spent a period in private practice before joining the faculty of the Department of Pediatrics at the University as an Associate Professor (clinical). Dr. Burr has continued his focus in pre-operative planning and fMRI but has also collaborated in development of a Sports Concussion Program, with emphasis on concussion management and safe return-to-play. When not caring for patients, Dr. Burr enjoys being with his family, running, biking and playing the guitar.
