Hundreds of family members, friends and future colleagues gather in late July to honor the new Vanderbilt University School of Medicine class during the School's annual Convocation and White Coat Ceremony.
The traditional donning of the signature white garment marks the official entrance into medical school for the members of VUSM's new class. The ceremony comes at the end of the introductory course, Foundations of the Profession, which gives students an understanding of the values and principles that guide a physician's relationship with society and patients.
