Ugandan students rotating in Des Moines

Two medical students from the University of Makerere in Uganda, Julliet Allen and Gilbert Elijah, will be in Des Moines for an 8-week rotation.  They will arrive on March 20 for a four-week rotation in the DMU Clinic and four-weeks at Mercy Medical Center and will head home on May 14.  Please welcome Julliet and Gilbert when you see them on campus!

This rotation was created through the partnership DMU has with the University of Makerere in Uganda.  Several DMU students are scheduled to rotate in Uganda with a few already returning from this rotation site.

The Global Health dept. is currently searching for adequate accommodations for these two students while in Des Moines.  If you are interested in helping with this opportunity by offering home stay, please contact Chris Catrenich!
