The White Coat Ceremony, as conducted at medical schools across America, is the result of a vision by Arnold P. Gold, M.D., a professor of surgery at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University. Dr. Gold believes that medical students should be introduced to the white coat and what it represents as they enter medical school rather than as they exit, which had been the case historically.
The White Coat Ceremony for the Class of 2017 will be July 26, 2013 in the Martha Culp Auditorium, Culp University Center on the main ETSU Campus.
See campus map for venue location.
