More than 240 physicians, pharmacists and physical therapists have graduated from PCOM Georgia in Suwanee.
A commencement ceremony was held May 27, 2021, at the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, where 130 Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine graduates, 83 Doctor of Pharmacy graduates, and 33 Doctor of Physical Therapy graduates wearing academic hoods in varying shades of green to distinguish their programs graced the amphitheatre stage.
“You were — and will continue to be — on the front lines, treating and caring for patients in the holistic manner that is part of your osteopathic heritage,” said PCOM President Dr. Jay S. Feldstein, who addressed the graduates. “I have never been more proud of a class of students. Go forth and make use of your gifts for the betterment of the world!”
The physical therapy students are in the first class to graduate from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine’s physical therapy program that began in 2018.
During the commencement ceremony, Dr. Mary P. Owen became the first retired PCOM Georgia professor to be recognized as a professor emerita, which marks her distinguished service to the college. She was one of the founding faculty members at PCOM Georgia in 2005.
