The COVID-19 pandemic has posed challenges for medical professionals and students across the nation.
While in-person ceremonies were canceled, the Oklahoma State University College (OSU) of Osteopathic Medicine welcomed its class of 2020 to the medical profession on Saturday, May 9, 2020 via virtual ceremony. Among those receiving their doctorates was Ethan Linscott, of Atoka.
Dr. Linscott, an Atoka native, attended Atoka Public School and later graduated from the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics. He then attended Oklahoma Baptist University and worked in the Emergency Department at Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City prior to enrolling in medical school in 2016.
During his time at OSU, Linscott was elected Chairman of the school’s Peer Review Committee as well as being elected by his class as President of the Student American Academy of Osteopathy. He was also selected to receive the Dr. Richard Schaeffer Memorial Scholarship, the A.T. Still Memorial Award, and the Dr. Murray Crow Memorial scholarship for rural physicians.
Dr. Linscott will continue his medical training at the Choctaw Nation Health Care Center in Talihina during his Family Medicine Residency. He plans on practicing in rural Oklahoma.
Linscott is the son of Ronald and the late Linda Linscott of Atoka. He is the grandson of Betty Bowles of Hardesty and Louise Cain of Atoka.
