Dear Parents, Partners, Family, and Friends of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Class of 2017:
The White Coat Ceremony is a milestone event in the professional development of medical students. It celebrates the transition from classroom to clinical training, and calls on students to incorporate the humanistic ideals of medicine in their future care of patients. Many of us have been working together to help make this a memorable occasion, and we hope that you’ll join us as a community to celebrate our humanistic commitment to the study and practice of medicine.
In addition to the Thursday evening ceremony, we have planned several “Post-White Coat” activities for you on Friday afternoon and evening, April 25th, as well as some potential options for Saturday morning (TBA), should you be interested.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us here.
