The DMU Clinic

Our multi-specialty clinic is conveniently located on the DMU campus. Our clinicians are more than providers; they’re researchers, mentors, and faculty dedicated to bringing expert, specialty health care to you and your family. Students attending DMU train alongside these leading physicians throughout their programs, gaining valuable, first-hand experience.

Carlye Marshall, Des Moines University Physician Assistant

“DMU focuses on all eight aspects of wellness when you are a student here. From physical, to emotional, to social, I could tell that the faculty here really cared about me as a person and wanted me to succeed in all aspects of my life. I also love that DMU holds the 50 and Better Fair! I have a minor in gerontology and adore the fact that DMU cares about their older adult community around them.”
