As many U.S. health care facilities, including UIHC, are finding ways to manage the surge in COVID-19 patients, hospital administrators are also scrambling to find enough clinicians to provide care.

As a result, many of the hospital’s health care providers have been re-assigned to help in the areas most heavily impacted by the surge, particularly the intensive care units. Several of UIHC’s certified registered nurse anesthetists, many of whom are graduates from UI’s doctorate-level anesthesia nursing program, have stepped up in a big way.

Graduate Education at Iowa

Founded in 1900, the University of Iowa (UI) Graduate College manages the enrollment and degree progress for nearly 5,000 students from over 100 graduate programs in 10 different colleges which span the Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Health Sciences, Engineering, Education, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, and Business.

The Graduate College has a history of innovation, which serves as a strong foundation for our contemporary initiatives in graduate education. The UI was among the first universities to offer MFA and DMA degrees, to accept and foster interdisciplinary research by faculty and students, and to embrace professional degrees at the doctoral level (DPT, DNP, and AUD).

The mission of the UI Graduate College is to foster an intellectual environment conducive to exemplary research, scholarship, and creativity among graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty. The College makes every effort to ensure that the graduate programs offered by the University are of high quality and stimulate the creation of new knowledge and information, and that these efforts simultaneously benefit both graduate and undergraduate student learning. The Graduate College serves as an advocate for graduate education, allocates resources that support graduate students and programs, manages policies and procedures to establish and assess graduate programs, and fosters interdisciplinary programs.

The Graduate College promotes excellence in the academic community with 25 graduate programs ranked among the top 25 best programs in the nation (U.S. News and World Report, 2016). The UI Graduate College leads the nation’s public institutions in high-quality dissertations, with five winners and twelve finalists in the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS/UMI) Distinguished Dissertation Award competition.

A long shot, but anyone have extra graduation tickets for the PhD ceremony Friday morning?
Calling all UI grad students! UI Students for Disability Advocacy & Awareness needs your help! We are petitioning the University to relocate the Student Disability Services office, which is currently located in the basement of Burge Residence Hall. We are hoping to collect 600 graduate student signatures alongside 2,400 undergrad signatures for a total of 3,000. If we reach this goal, 1 out of every 10 students at the University of Iowa will have signed this petition -- a strong message to University administrators that UI students across the board want a change. Please consider signing the petition today, and share it with as many UI peers and colleagues as possible! We have a real shot at making moves on this issue. See the linked event page to access the petition. Thank you! -- Andrea Courtney, Masters Student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program (College of Education) and President of UISDAA https://www.facebook.com/events/2007809429282343/
