  • Medical Student Bookstore

    The Medical Student Bookstore is a medical student run bookstore located in the MERF Atrium. The bookstore carries required texts and some recommended texts for medical students, PT students, and PA students. In addition to textbooks the bookstore also carries some medical equipment including white coats, tuning forks, reflex hammers, and some quick medical reference cards. The bookstore is open daily over the lunch hour from 12:00 p.m. - 12:50 p.m. and on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m. - 5:20 p.m. 

    The bookstore was created by students for students. Although there are several other bookstores in the Iowa City community, the Medical Student Bookstore provides students with a discount on textbooks. Students receive a 11% discount. The bookstore only carries new textbooks.  The bookstore also has a two week return policy. Textbooks which have not been written or highlighted in can be returned within two weeks of purchase with a receipt. The bookstore only accepts two modes of payment, you can either charge purchases to your University account or pay with check. No cash or credit cards are accepted. 

    In addition to the discount, another perk of having a student run bookstore is the chance for employment. If you are interested in employment contact David Peters at
