NYIT's NYCOM Hooding Ceremony to Celebrate Class of 2012

Old Westbury, N.Y.  (May 16, 2012)  ̶  NYIT’s New York College of Osteopathic Medicine will hold its 31st Hooding Ceremony on Monday, May 21, celebrating the Class of 2012’s academic achievements and commitment to medical practice.

The graduates ─ 291 new doctors of osteopathic medicine  ̶  will move on to residencies at national, regional, and local medical centers and hospitals. Their areas of specialty include family medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesiology, internal medicine, surgery, and pediatrics.
Keynote speaker Jordan Cohen, M.D., an honorary degree recipient at NYIT’s Commencement on Sunday, May 20, will receive the Riland Public Service Award. Four faculty members recognized for their teaching excellence will drape most of the new doctors with the traditional green velvet hood lined with NYIT’s official blue and gold colors. Family members who are practicing physicians will hood 45 members of the class, while those entering the military will be hooded by United Air Force Captain Dr. Brian P. Murray (D.O. ’11).
The ceremony begins at 10 am at the Tilles Center on the campus of LIU Post.
