A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) celebrated a new class of 170 graduates on May 18, 2019, at the 183rd commencement ceremony held in Baldwin Hall Auditorium at Truman State University. Of the 170 graduates, 101 men and 69 women received their doctor of osteopathic medicine degree during the ceremony. Five students received their master of science in biomedical sciences degree, 11 graduates were commissioned into the military forces, and 12 were selected to complete a one-year fellowship. Forty-eight graduates are Missouri residents, with 30 other states represented overall.

Rear Adm. Joyce M. Johnson, DO, MA, U.S. Public Health Services (retired), served as commencement speaker. Dr. Johnson is an osteopathic physician who has a broad base of public health experience in civilian and military sectors. She is a clinical and adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s School of Medicine and healthcare administration graduate program. During the ceremony, Dr. Johnson received an honorary doctor of osteopathic medicine degree. She spoke to graduates about finding joy within the profession.

“ATSU-KCOM was proud to celebrate the next generation of osteopathic medicine,” said Margaret Wilson, DO, ’82, dean, ATSU-KCOM. “The future is bright!”
