White Coat Ceremony July 14 for MD Class of 2021
July 14th, 2017
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Seventy men and women who have been accepted into the MD Class of 2021 at the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) will be welcomed warmly by family, friends and the students, staff and faculty of the medical school at a traditional ceremony marking their entrance into the study of medicine. The ceremony is named after the waist-length white coats which medical students will be presented during the event, which also features their first public recitation of the Oath of Hippocrates.
MD students will wear those “White Coats” during their clinical studies in the simulated patient labs at JABSOM, and at the bedsides of patients in medical centers throughout Hawaii. JABSOM is a “community based medical school”, with our faculty embedded within The Queen’s Medical Center, Hawaii Pacific Health medical centers, Kuakini Medical Center, Kapiolani Medical Center, the Mililani Physician Center, Tripler/Veterans Affairs Medical Centers, and other centers of care. More than 1200 physicians in Hawaii contribute to our students’ learning by serving as volunteer faculty.
