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 2023 will be July 19, 2019 Science Hill High
School, 1509 John Exum Parkway, Johnson City Ceremony will begin at 2:00 pm; reception to follow
