STUDENTS RECEIVE THEIR FIRST DOCTOR'S WHITE COATS DURING THE Fourth Annual WHITE COAT CEREMONY
The students in the entering class of 2014 of FAU's Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine received their first doctor's white coats at a time-honored ceremony in August. A symbolic event introduced in 1993, the White Coat Ceremony was established after a group of distinguished physicians, medical educators and community leaders formed the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.

More than 100 medical schools in the United States now hold White Coat Ceremonies.
