AOF Honors2018 EducatorOTY Final

The 2018 award was presented to J. Michael Wieting, DO, Senior Associate Dean at Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM). An educator through and through, he also serves as professor of both physical medicine and rehabilitation, and osteopathic manipulative medicine at the school

Dr. Wieting says his real goal as an educator is to provide a bridge for his students to get from where they are to where they’re trying to be. “I had a mentor once tell me the way to pay him back for letting me stand on his shoulders and learn from him was to one day let others stand on my shoulders and learn from me. I look at that as my obligation to the profession, my way to leave a legacy.”
