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.
STUDENT DOCTOR OF THE MONTH
Class of 2022 Harrogate
I really think that SJ is the embodiment of what it means to be a student doctor. She constantly is putting others before herself, striving for excellence, and whole-heartedly caring for everyone that’s around her. SJ is constantly helping class of 22 with resources to aid us in our studies and with a plethora of encouragements along the way. She is well deserving of this reward!
SJ has gone above and beyond for her friends and classmates since we began this journey at DCOM. Academically, SJ always helps by making thorough study guides for the class, and seems to post them just when we need them the most. Professionally, SJ consistently uses her creativity and dedication to run NAP club and SAMOPS. She is so humble about how hard she works for her clubs, doing a lot of things behind the scenes. Emotionally, SJ is always there to lend an ear and listen and support you, even if it's a busy day for her. Not to mention all the coffee runs she has made over the last two years for her friends. Personally, SJ's passion for people shines above all else. She truly embodies what it means to serve others, dedicating her skills and talents to help people one day through medicine, and also choosing to serve her country in the Air Force. She is passionate about everything she does, whether it's making those beautiful study guides, uplifting words, bringing coffee at the perfect time throughout a long study day, serving in her various roles in DCOM clubs, or just when she is being an amazing friend to all. What I love about SJ is how she knows pretty much everyone at DCOM and makes an effort to get to know the people around her and make them feel special. There isn't a day that goes by that she isn't trying to do something for others and help out any way she can. I would love for SJ to receive this SDOM as a thank you from everyone who knows her for all she does for us in every aspect of life. Aim high.

"I thought I would throw out the idea of nominating Priya, Ellie and Amy for SDsOM due to their work on the COVID-19 fundraiser! It is really exciting that they put so much work into this project to help others in this difficult, scary time and to represent LMU-DCOM across the country!"
"I know I probably can’t nominate more than one person, but I would like to nominate Priya, Ellie, and Amy for running the COVID fundraiser! They have been putting in sooooo much time in behind the scenes for it and have been so on top of school at the same time. It’s super impressive what they’ve been able to do with it and they’re delivering and sending out the first round of PPE this week as well."
