January 2021 Class

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine welcomes the January 2021 Class to our time-honored White Coat Ceremony. This event marks the entree of matriculating students into the profession and commemorates the high standards of medicine. In the presence of friends and families, students are cloaked by deans and faculty members in their first white coat—a symbol of the trust being bestowed upon them to carry on the tradition of doctoring—and led through the Modern Oath of Physicians.

The ceremony will feature a keynote address by Dr. Julie Taylor, Senior Associate Dean of Clinical Sciences, as well as remarks by Dr. William Owen, Dean of Medical Sciences, and Dr. Shai Shoshani, a 2010 graduate and primary care sports medicine physician at Englewood Sports Medicine in New Jersey.

Directly following the ceremony, students and their guests are invited to attend a dinner reception in Porto Cupecoy. Shuttle transportation will be provided.
