The White Coat Ceremony marks the transition that medical students make when they complete their classroom education and begin their clinical training.
It is a significant milestone which recognizes the next phase on the medical education continuum that requires physicians-in-training to apply acquired knowledge and skills to patients in varying clinical settings. This rite of passage is acknowledgments of the students' achievements thus far and serves as a symbol of an ongoing commitment to the profession and patient care.
