White Coat Ceremony

2014 White Coat

The School of Medicine recognizes first-year students' entrance into the medical profession at a White Coat Ceremony. The White Coat Ceremony is one of a series of initiatives developed by the medical school as part of its Project Professionalism. This school-wide project was implemented to foster a culture among students and faculty that honors the ideals of medical professionalism: maintenance of patient interest above physician self-interest, altruism, accountability, excellence, duty and service, honor and integrity, and respect for others.

The ceremony lasts about 90 minutes.
