The White Coat Ceremony is designed to introduce new medical students to the characteristics of the complete doctor and to provide a contract for professionalism and empathy in medicine. Each student will receive a white coat signifying their transition into the medical profession. Immediately following the ceremony everyone is invited to attend a light reception. All students in the incoming MD Class are expected to participate in this ceremony.
