So the white coat ceremony is tonight at 5:15pm! It is my formal induction into the world of medicine, and symbolically a big step for medical students, although it is much easier to attain than say, graduation. For the “first” time, I will be given a white coat, a symbol of professionalism, trust, and compassion. It is a privilege to wear the white coat (although we’ve already been wearing it for a week now for anatomy lab!).
For all those who could not make it down to St. Maarten to witness this event, it will be streamed live via webcast at:
