Reaffirmation of DMU's Mission
Given the recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, DMU reaffirms our commitment to our mission to improve lives in our global community by educating diverse groups of highly competent and compassionate health professionals. We will continue to provide a comprehensive, evidence-based curriculum, which is governed by the prevailing standards of accreditation.
DMU is committed to the principles of equity, wellness and justice based on our belief in having equitable access to health care that serves the needs of all patients. Fulfilling these principles requires public policy that protects the patient-provider relationship and gives health professionals the knowledge and skills necessary to provide the best possible care patients deserve.
We also support the value for members of the DMU community to engage in civil discourse on a variety of health, social, political and other challenging issues.
