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.

“During our pre-clinical years, we are immersed in a curriculum that balances innovation and technology with lectures from renowned professors. We are given the tools, resources and opportunities to become compassionate, empathetic and competent clinicians to serve on local, national and even global levels.”
