St. Matthew’s University Holds White Coat Ceremony
The white coat ceremony holds a special place in the life of any aspiring doctor and denotes the start of their medical careers. Learn how SMUSOM conducts the ceremony for their students.
White Coat Ceremony
Last month, St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine hosted its annual White Coat Ceremony for medical students.
The White Coat Ceremony is the first time that first-semester students put on their white coats, symbolizing that they are now officially doctors in training.
Wearing their white coats for the first time, students recited the St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine honor code and reflected on the ethical duties and values of physicians.
The ceremony is also an opportunity for students now in semesters two to five to receive awards from the previous semester for excellence in various courses.
St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine shared its congratulations to the future doctors and wished them well in all their endeavors.
