CPMS Students Exceed National Match Rate

March 26, 2008 —

All 41 students in the CPMS Class of 2008 were recently selected to three-year podiatric medical and surgical residency programs. The initial match rate for DMU students was 90%, compared to the national average of 74% for all colleges of podiatric medicine. Congratulations to the Class of 2008.

Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
