The students in the entering class of 2013 of FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine received their first doctor’s white coats at a time-honored ceremony last August.

The Foundation concluded that the beginning of a student’s journey into medicine is the best time to influence standards of professionalism, humanistic values and behavior. More than 100 medical schools in the United States now hold White Coat Ceremonies.
