Student Clinician's Ceremony
The Student Clinician’s Ceremony is held in June, before the beginning of the third year of medical school, to help prepare students for their clinical rotations.
In their rotations, students begin seeing patients alongside doctors and residents as they gain experience in primary care and medical specialties.
The Student Clinician’s Ceremony aims to address some of the anxiety felt by students entering this transitional period by providing insight, and discussing fears and expectations.
During the Student Clinician’s Ceremony, students receive professionalism pins to wear on their white coats as a constant reminder of their duty to their patients and their profession and agree to follow the Charter on Professionalism.
The ceremony is followed by two days of clinical skills workshops and small group discussion about professionalism issues.
For more information about the Student Clinician’s Ceremony, please contact the Office of Student Affairs.
