dc.description.abstractThis news item is about: White coat ceremonies have become a tradition at many schools of medicine and at veterinary colleges across the country. At these ceremonies, students receive the ultimate symbol of professionalism and empathy in the practice of medicine – the white coat. Cornell adds special meaning to this “rite of passage” in two ways. During the ceremony, veterinarians and faculty who have provided mentorship to students along the way are asked to participate in the ceremony by enrobing their students. Similarly, family and friends who have provided considerable support and special encouragement are asked to pin their student.
