Steven R. Craig '72
Dr. Steve Craig is a 1972 graduate of Dowling High School where he was active in cross country, debate and band. He grew up on the west side of Des Moines and was the third of six children, all of whom attended St. Theresa Catholic School in Des Moines and Dowling High School.
Dr. Craig attended the University of Iowa where he received both his undergraduate and medical degrees. Following medical school, he completed his internal medicine residency training at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, Colorado. He has been involved in internal medicine patient care and medical education since his return to Des Moines in 1983.
Dr. Craig currently serves as a Clinical Professor and an Assistant Dean at the Des Moines branch campus of the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. He loves teaching and enjoys getting to work with bright medical students and resident physicians every day, including the many Dowling Catholic graduates he had the opportunity to work with throughout the years. Dr. Craig served on the DCHS Foundation Board from 2000-2009.
Dr. Craig and his wife Mary Beth have two children, Jennifer and Jeff, both DCHS graduates, and two grandchildren. Dr. Craig’s mother (Trudy) attended St. Joseph Academy and he is very hopeful that his grandchildren will one day be the fourth generation of the Craig family to attend DCHS. He is honored to be recognized by the school he loves and that he credits for much of his success.
