Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Des Moines University is a great school with a very practical Masters in Health Care Administration curriculum. The lecturers were always available to help with questions or concerns. The Masters in Health Care Administration combines both online and class format. You can study and work full time.

I began my education at DMU in August of 2015. I have been very pleased with my education so far. My fellow students and staff are excellent. I would recommend checking out our program if you are interested in Osteopathic Medicine.

I love the flexibility of the online MPH program at Des Moines University. I have time to work while in school and attend classes in my own time. I do miss the personal connection of traditional school though. In all, DMU has provided me an opportunity to earn my master's degree from a CEPH accredited university, while being taught by passionate and caring professors.

I am currently pursing a degree in osteopathic medicine (DO) at Des Moines University. My decision to attend DMU was based on my interaction with the current students during my interview. Out of the 9 schools I interviewed at, they had the most positive attitudes and welcomed the prospective students. This attitude has been carried into my current class. Our class is incredibly supportive of each other and encourages each other to succeed. During our courses, we are able to interact with students in different programs (MSA, DPM) and gain an understanding of what it will be like to work with different professions. In addition, our professors truly want us to succeed and make sure to be available whenever they are needed. Several professors come back to campus in the evening to answer questions the night before an exam. Our Dean is very involved in our education and every department is approachable and helpful. One the other deciding factors to come to DMU was the campus and its resources. DMU has a wonderful gym with classes available, a recently remodeled library with ample study areas, tutoring services, and counseling services. Medical school has been more emotionally draining then I have ever imagined it could be; but feel my success has been made possible by my professors and peers. DMU is not in my ideal location and it is more expensive than other DO schools; however, these cons are minor when compared to the quality education I know I am receiving.

I am currently enrolled in the College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery at Des Moines University, and I absolutely love it. The coursework is rigorous, but manageable if you work hard and utilize the resources provided to you by the school. I moved to the area from my home that is located pretty far away, and I have encountered nothing but welcoming faculty/peers and accommodating administration. I honestly cannot think of any cons that apply to me personally, but I have heard from fellow students that they wish public transportation was "better." However, many of these students moved to Des Moines from areas with a high walking-commute population (ie., New York City), and didn't even need a car. The transportation system (DART) is free for students, and many students who didn't bring a car with them to school simply live across from campus and walk to class. The pros are far more numerous, and I could talk for days about the open-door accessibility of the faculty/professors, the accolades awarded to various departments, programs, and colleges within DMU, as well as the affordability of living in Des Moines. Overall, I would choose this graduate program again and again.
