Bret Ripley with Ugandan studentsDMU has an exchange agreement with Universidad de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) in Lima, Peru.  Every year, a few of our students go to Lima to do international rotations and a few medical students from UPC come to Des Moines.  In the past, DMU has also hosted students from Makerere University in Uganda.

DMU also periodically hosts visiting scholars who come to work on research with a DMU faculty member.  In 2017, we hosted 3 visiting scholars – from China, Japan and Brazil.
