CPMS students surpass national average on boards

April 16, 2008 —

The Des Moines Univeristy College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Class of 2008 received a first-time pass rate of 95% on Part II of the National Board Exam. This was 12 percent higher than the national first-time pass rate. CPMS scored above the national mean for all five sections of the exam. Congratulations!

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.
