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 2021 will be July 21, 2017 in the Martha
Culp Auditorium, Culp University Center on the main ETSU Campus at 4:30 p.m. See campus map for venue location.
