College of Medicine – Tucson Class of 2025 White Coat Ceremony

When: July 23, 2021 5:30pm to 7:30pm
White Coat Ceremony

The White Coat Ceremony calls on students to incorporate the humanistic ideals of medicine in their future care of patients. Each year, approximately 120 outstanding scholars have the honor of joining one of the most prestigious and leading medical institutions in the country when they are formally welcomed as the University of Arizona’s newest class of medical students at the annual White Coat Ceremony. These students will become a part of the legacy of thousands of alumni whose contributions to medical science have resulted in advances that have expanded the boundaries of knowledge, alleviated untold suffering, and saved the lives of countless individuals.

Our new medical students gather in the presence of their families, guests, faculty members and college leaders to formally receive the cloak of their future profession: the white coat. This event marks each student's entry into clinical medicine – a milestone in the education of a medical student.

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, a public foundation dedicated to fostering humanism in medicine, furnishes each White Coat participant with a pin that symbolizes a shared commitment to providing compassionate and competent patient care. These pins are placed on the coats prior to the ceremony.

As information regarding the global outbreak of COVID-19 continues to evolve, please keep in mind this event is subject to change.
