Saturday, October 13, 2012
Alyssa Mixon, daughter of Lorraine Bauman and James Mixon, of Bedford, a first-year student at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, Maine, recently participated in the college’s annual White Coat Ceremony.
The ceremony formally recognizes the transition students make from laypeople to those assuming the responsibility of physicians.
The evening ceremony was held Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland, Maine. In keeping with tradition, the medical students were presented with their white coats by members of the physician community.
After the presentation, the students recited the osteopathic oath. A reception to honor the class of 2016 followed.
