Larner Class of 2027 White Coat Ceremony

The Larner College of Medicine Class of 2027 White Coat Ceremony was held on Friday, October 13, 2023 at the Ira Allen Chapel. Join us in celebrating this achievement and the ceremonial beginning of their journey to become medical practitioners! 

Initiated on August 20, 1993 at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, this annual ceremony or a similar rite now takes place for first-year medical students at about 90 percent of schools of medicine and osteopathy in the United States, and is supported by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation. According to the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, the White Coat Ceremony helps establish a psychological contract for the practice of medicine.
