Indian Hills Community College, with campuses in Centerville and Ottumwa, and Des Moines University, located in West Des Moines have announced a new partnership to create enhanced pathways for IHCC students seeking careers in occupational therapy. The partnership is intended to benefit students while helping build Iowa’s healthcare workforce.
Under the partnership agreement, DMU will annually reserve two seats for qualified IHCC students in its doctoral program in occupational therapy. IHCC students will be guaranteed an interview for admission to the program by meeting DMU’s admission requirements. The agreement also allows IHCC students to begin applying to DMU’s OTD program as early as June prior to their second year.
