DMU students have many opportunities and experiences to gain skill sets that will enhance and contribute to their personal and professional development. Part of that development is to become culturally competent. We will challenge you to examine your own cultural biases and stereotypes in your educational journey here. The end result will equip and empower you to be a part of a global health care system that responds appropriately to and is inclusive in delivering positive health outcomes for a multicultural society.
