InforgraphicThumbnailEach August, the School of Medicine welcomes its incoming class with the White Coat Ceremony. The ceremony marks the end of medical school orientation and the students’ first class, “Patient, Doctor and Society,” which emphasizes professionalism, compassion, responsibility, ethics, and the doctor/patient relationship. In addition to receiving their white coats, which are provided by the school’s Medical Alumni Association, the day marks a major milestone on the path to becoming a physician. Being accepted to medical school and participating in the White Coat Ceremony is a remarkable achievement; the School of Medicine is privileged to walk with these students on the journey of knowledge and self-discovery that they are just beginning.
