Members of Des Moines University Health Leaders and UnityPoint Clinic staff came together to celebrate Allied Health Week on November 8.

As part of 2018 Allied Health Week on November 4-10, the Des Moines University Health Leaders, an interprofessional student club, brought to campus members of UnityPoint Clinic’s recruitment staff on November 8. They held mock interviews with more than 30 physical therapy, physician assistant, and osteopathic medical students to help them hone their interviewing skills and resumés. The UnityPoint team also gave a presentation on general tips for constructing a strong resumé, the process that occurs from applying for a position to landing an interview, how to come prepared, and insights on contract negotiations. Additional events involved hosting a noon event for students to learn about each program on campus and networking on another evening that week.
