Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) was established on August 1, 2007, on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee.  
With the beautiful Cumberland Gap mountains serving as the backdrop, LMU-DCOM is one of the most prominent buildings on the main campus in Harrogate, TN.  Hundreds of osteopathic medical students call Harrogate, TN their home as they pursue their Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO). 
DCOM opened a new location in Knoxville, TN in 2019. The inaugural class began in the fall and LMU-Knoxville will continue to add additional classes each year. DCOM at LMU-Knoxville is located in west Knoxville between Cedar Bluff and Turkey Creek.

I would like to nominate Jeremy McNaught for SDOM. Jeremy is a physiology tutor this semester and 100% goes above and beyond in serving First Years his role as tutor. He is always available and eager to answer questions and puts in countless hours of extra work creating his own powerpoints and practice questions. Jeremy uses his mastery of the material to enhance other’s understanding. Even during the worst of weeks on his schedule he is faithful to sacrifice his time to serve others. We are so grateful for him!! 

I chose to nominate (Kailey Hutzler), she went above and beyond with providing study guides! 


I’d like to nominate Kailey Hutzler for SDOM.  She put together a painstakingly detailed study guide that must have take huge time commitment.  I appreciate it very much and it was an invaluable resource in keeping everything straight for the last MFM exam! 


I would like to nominate Kailey Hutzler for SDOM, she has been very helpful to the class in sending her study material to us for every exam and making adjustments to them as she goes. She definitely doesn't have to share the material and or can send it to her friends but instead she is making sure she shares her things on all platforms for any test or quiz.

Ryan is a wonderful person to know! He is friendly and so willing to help other students. He's either offering an ear or giving out resources to help us through difficult subjects. He also makes sure to check in with people to be sure they're not getting lost and offers support when you feel like you're about to drown. Medical school is hard but Ryan makes you feel like you're not alone and that it will be okay.

I would like to nominate ‘B’ because he’s not only shown to me and his peers the value of hard work and dedication, but also the importance of camaraderie and leadership. Brendon is the type of friend that will uplift all of his friends around him through morale and spirit. This semester has especially been hard and exhausting, but he finds the most meaningful ways to escape the loom of consistent studying by actively engaging in some social activity. Whether it be through sports, working out, hanging out, etc., Brendon knows how to elevate a person’s mood. ‘B’ is so deserving of this nomination.


Brendon is my nomination of choice because Brendon through multiple times and efforts has been at the forefront of gathering people to engage in study sessions. He also is a strong proponent of sharing resources that he may obtain from his mentor to us just so we all are equipped to enhance our studying. He believes in hard work and he balances that by actively allowing others to hang out with their friends/peers so we aren’t so cooped up in our “study holes”.
