White Coat Ceremony

July 29, 2018


The RowanSOM White Coat Ceremony and welcoming reception are inspired by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, which was established to recognize and promote physicians who demonstrate both scientific excellence and devotion to comprehensive patient care.

The white coat is a symbol used to express and reaffirm our dedication to preserving humanism in medicine, while the ceremony is a ritualized event to define a shared interpretation.

Check out video from one of our past White Coat Ceremonies here.
