Iowa City's population is much too small to supply an adequate acute patient base for a medical school. They have to " truck in" patients. Rochester has similar problems. Omaha's metro area is approximately 1 million----much larger patient group teaching resource. Des Moines would have been a better location for Iowa's medical school facility.

Yes, but Iowa City is in proximity to "The triangle". Which is the area between Keokuk, Ottumwa and Davenport. A special area of Iowa that needs all the healthcare access it can get. (I learned of this from area from peds residents in Iowa City, and are quite versed in the varied learning that "the triangle" provides.)

I have often heard of the "3D" triangle, between Des Moines, Davenport and Dubuque. This area includes most of the population of the state and is U of I patient population. We in the Sioux a City metro area resent this. But Nebraska and South Dakota don't want us either.LOL

I used to work in Iowa and live in Nebraska. Every day I went to work I raised the average IQ in both states. Of course I also lowered the average when I came back home.
yep just referring to the time I made an off hand comment that NJ kids do not grow up dreaming of going to Rutgers. Which was followed by 10,000 posts about how great the fishing is in NJ.
