Hello Wyoming!


Looks like we are moving to Casper, Wyoming for Brady's medical school rotations!
Added Jan 17: So maybe I need to explain a little bit more about this move for people who aren't familiar with DMU life. For your third and fourth years of medical school you do rotations with physicians. There is not enough room for all DMU third and fourth year medical students to stay in the town of their medical school (DMU doesn't have its own hospital), so they send some students elsewhere. Elsewhere, in this case, could have been other cities in Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio, Missouri, or Wyoming. You get some say in where you want to go. You give them your first 3 choices. They do a Lottery for region and then city. If you choose Wyoming for your first choice and get it, you go to Casper. That is the only city available. So we thought that since there is chance that we might have to move even if we chose the Iowa region (because of the second lottery for city), we might as well make our first choice closer to home. We got our first choice. So that is how and why Wyoming is in our future.
