ATSU-KCOM and ATSU-MOSDOH students receive white coats

July 16, 2019
Posted In: KCOM, Missouri Campus, MOSDOH, Student Headlines, University Headlines

Continuing a long-running tradition in the healing professions, first-year students at A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) and Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ATSU-MOSDOH) participated in a white coat ceremony on Saturday, July 13, 2019.

New students took a public oath and received their first white coat, symbolizing and commemorating their commitment and responsibility to their chosen profession and future patients.

Dean of ATSU-KCOM, Margaret Wilson, DO, ’82, cloaked 170 incoming osteopathic medical students, including 63 students from Missouri and two from Kirksville. Students then recited the Osteopathic Pledge of Commitment.

Dean of ATSU-MOSDOH, Dwight McLeod, DMD, cloaked 62 incoming dental students, including one hometown student, and joined them in reciting the Oath of Profession.

Following both traditional white coat ceremonies, each student received a key from second-year students in their program to the log cabin belonging to the founder of osteopathic medicine, A.T. Still, DO. This University-specific tradition symbolizes the obligation of first-year students to help preserve the heritage of A.T. Still University of Health Sciences.
