When two forces come together, great things can happen. This is often the case when Des Moines University’s Development & Alumni Relations department partners with Continuing Medical Education to provide countless opportunities for our alumni to continue their medical education long after they have left the halls of DMU.
This constant benefit for alumni provides a variety of educational activities, including but not limited to: live symposiums, single or multi-topic seminars and workshops, enduring materials, round table discussions, journal-based education, simulations and regularly-scheduled series.
Just recently an alumnus, Russell Hopp, D.O.’75, reached out in hopes of partnering with his state affiliate, the Nebraska Medical Association, to create a partnership with our CME Office and Development & Alumni Relations. Dr. Hopp hoped that creating this offering would benefit not only DMU alumni, but also medical providers within his community.
“We value Dr. Hopp’s pride in his alma mater and his willingness to help us further engage alumni from the Omaha/Lincoln area,” says Ronnette Vondrak, director of Alumni Relations.
The upcoming course, Primary Care Update for Nebraska and Iowa Providers, was the result of Dr. Hopp’s efforts. This CME event is targeted to both Nebraska and Iowa-based physicians, mid-level providers, nurses, ancillary staff, residents, medical students and any other interested health professional.
