In the medical profession, a white coat isn’t just a garment. It’s a symbol of the journey that all medical school students take before officially becoming physicians—a shared journey that American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine’s (AUC) Class of 2019 started together at the Sept. 4th White Coat Ceremony on AUC’s campus.
During this rite of passage, which is recognized and celebrated at AUC for every new group of incoming students, new physicians-in-training don white coats and recite an oath to uphold the standards of the medical profession.
The speaker for the September 2015 White Coat Ceremony was Raj Klair, MD, Class of 2009, who completed his residency training at University of Toronto and is now in practice in the area. The ceremony was organized by AUC’s Student Government Organization.
