White coat, medical school for North Bend's Corey Lindberg

Corey Lindberg of North Bend received his white coat at the White Coat Ceremony at Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harrogate, Tenn., this fall.

Lindberg is a first-year osteopathic medical student at LMU-DCOM. The White Coat Ceremony is a special ceremony designed to mark a student's entrance into medical school.

The first White Coat Ceremony was held in 1993 at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons and is now a standard ritual in institutions of both allopathic and osteopathic medical education across the country.

During the ceremony, each medical student is presented and "robed" with his or her short white laboratory coat, formalizing and welcoming the student's entrance into the study of medicine.

The DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine is located on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee.
