The White Coat Ceremony is a rite of passage for medical students. This is the commitment ceremony for incoming students to share with family and friends as they become doctors-in-training. During the ceremony, a white coat is placed on each student's shoulders, and they recite the Hippocratic Oath as they begin their medical profession journey.
