"I visited DMU expecting to have a pleasant experience and I was not disappointed. The student comaradarie is exceptional and the entire staff of the school goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. Most of the facilities are new and well kept and the only old building on campus is going to be replaced shortly with a new one that is scheduled to start construction any time. Des Moines is a great place to get your medical education because there is enough to do to keep from getting bored, but not so much to cause distraction. " Report Response
