White Coat Ceremony 1

Physician Barbara Ostrov welcomes an incoming member of the College of Medicine's class of 2013 during the annual White Coat Ceremony. During the ceremony, members of the class of 2013 receive their first white medical coats, symbols of their entrance into the medical profession as student physicians. Students then recited the Hippocratic oath, the universally recognized creed for physicians.
