The White Coat Ceremony is an annual rite of passage for many North American medical schools, and is used to welcome incoming first-year students to the medical profession. Each medical student will be presented with a white coat as a gift from a senior member of the medical profession.
The College of Medicine and the College of Medicine Alumni Association host the White Coat Ceremony for medical students, and welcome friends, family, and general supporters of the students to attend. This is a celebration for not only the student, but also for the support system that has helped them achieve their dreams and goals.
At the White Coat Ceremony, the students will be addressed by the Dean of the College of Medicine, representatives from the SMSS, and many other distinguished guests.
