HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Dozens of doctors from William Carey University will now be heading all across the country for their residencies, after graduating from the university's medical school Saturday morning.

92 students in the College of Osteopathic Medicine participated in a commencement ceremony on the Hattiesburg campus. 

It's the third graduation for the medical school, which began classes in the fall of 2010.

The new physicians will do residencies in Florida, New York, Ohio, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi and several other states.  

"We feel great," said Jeremy Benoit, D.O., a student from Thibodaux, Louisiana. "It's a culmination of four years, a lot of hard work, a lot of sleepless nights and we're ready to start our next practices and go and help the community."

"It was tough and it was bittersweet but we're all happy that we're all done and it's awesome to see all the classmates together," said Suchita Desai, D.O., who will do her residency in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The graduation address was given by Tyler Cymet, associate vice-president for medical education for the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine.
