    Your post should inform us about your practice, recent appointments, residencies, fellowships, awards, and other significant personal and professional news. We love to hear about the successes and life changes of our alumni.

    Audience:

    Our focus is on sharing DMU alumni achievements and news with prospective and current students, staff/faculty, alumni and the community. Keep this in mind while writing your post.

    Editing:

    We will proofread your class note submission for any typos or link errors. We may edit the content if it is determined to be too controversial or inappropriate. We will consult you if we have any questions.

Have something to get off your chest? You can write about anything even remotely DMU related and we just might put it online. Or do you want to share your perspectives on something going on in your field? Is there a current medical trend or fad you want to discuss? Do it here! All posts show up on the Dose of DMU and could even be shared on the DMU homepage.

  • Author information

  • Guidelines

  • Des Moines University publishes news, opinion pieces and blog posts to share information and faculty and student perspectives with prospective and current students, alumni, academic colleagues, patients and the community. We urge authors to submit content that is somewhat universal due to our wide range of readers.

    General guidelines:

    A blog is an informal communication tool and a way for you to reach out directly to an external audience who might be interested in your topic. Here are some suggestions to keep in mind while writing your post:

    Post content:

    Your post can be news-related or an opinion piece. Your research, your take on a current health topic or even a link to another online source that you enjoyed reading and found relevant would make for great content.

    Blog audience:

    Our blog readers are a general audience. Our focus is on creating content for prospective and current students, alumni and the community. A few of our readers will be experts in your field, but most are not. Keep this in mind while writing your post.

    Editing:

    We will proofread your post for any typos or link errors. We may edit the content if it is determined to be too controversial or inappropriate for our Dose of DMU blog. We will consult with you before publishing any edited article.

There’s a lot going on at DMU. If there is something going on with a DMU department or employee that you think people need to know then submit it below! We will follow up with you. All posts show up on the Dose of DMU and could even be shared on the DMU homepage.

If you have questions please contact jordan.bahnsen@dmu.edu.
