The College of Osteopathic Medicine Class of 2019 hosted the annual memorial service to honor those who donated their bodies to medical science and for study in the college’s Ross Anatomy Wing. The memorial was held on April 29 at Bass Memorial Chapel on the Hattiesburg campus. During the service students from the class discussed the necessity of the practical study of anatomy and the selflessness of the donors.

William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine faculty members and students visited the State Capitol in Jackson on Feb. 25 for activities with the Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians and the Mississippi State Medical Association.
 
During the visit, the group attended the Capitol Day event hosted by the academy. The theme for this year’s event was “The Magic of Family Medicine.” The annual event is held to promote the important role that family physicians play in the health of residents of Mississippi.
 
The group also attended the association’s White Coat Rally, an effort to bring physicians and medical students to the Capitol to meet with legislators about pending legislation.
 
During both events, physicians, residents and medical students were invited to sit in the galleries of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The groups were also introduced on the floor of each chamber.
 
The medical college is the second medical school in the state and the first school of osteopathic medicine. Established in 2010, the medical college graduated its inaugural class in 2014 and received full accreditation.
