Hi, welcome to Des Moines university. I’m Alex and I’m Sam,
and we’re students here at DMU. Come along with us as we give you a
360 tour of our campus. Our campus is located in a residential area
on Grand Avenue. It is just driving distance away from downtown. And within walking distance to
great entertainment, restaurants, and housing. Let’s go check out our campus. Here we are at the center of Des Moines University. We have a very beautiful safe campus that is easy to navigate. Beneath where I’m standing we have underground walkways that connect all the major buildings. As you begin to look around you’ll see the
Des Moines University Clinic, which is a multi-specialty clinic for students to learn from physicians and clinicians. To my left we have Ryan Hall, which contains our lab spaces, and to my right we have the Student Education Center. Let’s go check that out first. We are now in our largest lecture hall on campus. The auditorium holds nearly 400 students,
and hosts lectures every day. A variety of campus events are also held in here throughout the year. The SEC is a great place for students to sit with their fellow classmates to study, grab a bite to eat at Summerfield’s Cafe, or sit by the fireplace to warm up. Just a few steps from here we also have a student lounge that is equipped with TVs and couches, a game room, and a meditation room. Our 35,000 square foot library
offers a great place to study in a quiet environment. It is equipped with 26 study and conference rooms as well as several anatomical models. Here you’ll also find the Center for Teaching and Learning staff who assist students with study tools and strategies, testing techniques, time management, board preparation, and peer tutoring. In OMM lab first and second year D.O. students learn the hands-on application of osteopathic medicine. In the first and second year class students spend approximately two hours each week learning how to diagnose and treat the different muscle skeletal regions of the body. And the lab contains 42 state-of-the-art adjustable tables as well as separate changing areas. In the physical therapy classroom,
PT students receive extensive clinical instruction and practice manual techniques. The skills acquired here prepare them for situations. They’ll encounter in a variety of health care settings. Every student on campus will spend time learning here in the anatomy lab. Computer-aided instructions are available at each of the 40 stations to guide students with dissection. Digital technology used in the lab provides greater insights and prepare you for the ways anatomy is viewed in medical practice. The Sim Lab offers students exceptional opportunities to experience scenarios, learn procedures, and hone evidence-based practices and diagnostics, workup, and treatment before they see real patients. In our research labs, faculty and students collaborate to provide solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Students play a key role in active research projects throughout the school year. And through our Master’s of Anatomy and
Biomedical Sciences as well as our mentored research programs. In the Clinical Medicine Laboratory students learn physical examination skills
which they practice on each other. Students also work with ultrasound machines in anatomy and clinical medicine, which enhance their knowledge on the human anatomy. The Munroe building is a state-of-the-art classroom that allows both faculty and students to collaborate using innovative technology in both large and small groups. Each table is equipped with a monitor to allow students to share ideas and collaborate with one another. Coming to DMU all students receive free access to the Wellness Center, which includes a basketball court, indoor track,
cardio equipment, strength training, and a teaching kitchen. Many students here at DMU take part in intramural sports here at the Wellness Center including volleyball, soccer, and basketball. We hope you enjoyed this 360 view of
