White Coat Ceremony

The first steps to your MD

The white coat ceremony is a special event that welcomes incoming medical students into the study of medicine and emphasizes the importance of compassionate care, scientific aptitude and ethical behavior, both in medical school and in your chosen profession. This ceremony is an important rite-of-passage that marks the transformation of a new cohort of RUSM students entering as doctors-in-training.
