White Coat Ceremony for the Class of 2020

“I will practice medicine with conscience and dignity.” At a ceremony on Friday, October 7, 2016 in UVM’s Ira Allen Chapel, 118 first-year medical students uttered those words as part of a major career milestone: receiving their first white doctors’ coats. While UVM’s newest class of future doctors still have years of classwork and training ahead of them, they are in a unique position; they have access to two new additions at the college: a remodeled Reardon Classroom in the Larner Medical Education Center and a new course called Foundations of Clinical Science.
