Student Clinician Ceremony
The Class of 2024 Student Clinician Ceremony & Family Celebration was held on Friday, April 22, 2022.
While the Student Clinician Ceremony is typically a smaller event held at the school with students and faculty, because this class was unable to have an in-person White Coat Ceremony due to the pandemic, we took this opportunity to welcome and celebrate with families and friends!
About the Ceremony
The Student Clinician Ceremony is held in the spring, 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 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 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 Student Clinician Oath.
The ceremony is preceded by clinical skills workshops and small group discussions about patient safety and professionalism issues. For more information about the Student Clinician Ceremony, contact the Office of Student Affairs.
