DMU and Hastings College Sign Agreement to Forge New Pathways to Medical Education

Des Moines University Medicine and Health Sciences has signed an agreement with Hastings College in Nebraska to support students interested in medical careers.

“With a growing number of students looking for careers in health care and related fields, we want to provide more opportunities for them,” says Kittie Grace, Ph.D., interim dean for academic affairs at Hastings.

The agreement with DMU opens doors for Hastings students to apply for several health care programs offered at DMU, including the assurance of interviews. It also secures one slot for a Hastings student aspiring to join DMU’s Doctor of Podiatric Medicine program and another for a student pursuing a Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree.

“This agreement offers many opportunities for Hastings students,” says Molly Moeller, senior director of admissions and recruitment at DMU. “This agreement is part of DMU’s ongoing efforts to meet the demands of an anticipated workforce shortage. This partnership opens doors for more students to enter medical careers.”
