Clinical Commencement 'White Coat' Ceremony
Our annual Clinical Commencement 'White Coat' Ceremony will take place on Wednesday 29th January 2014 at 5:45pm in O’Reilly Hall for medical students entering their final clinical years in medicine. The ceremony will be followed by a reception for students, their guests and staff in the Conservatory in O’Reilly Hall.
The 'White Coat' Ceremony marks the transition from preclinical to clinical medical education and is a symbol of the professional responsibilities that students will assume throughout their clinical life. During the ceremony, the students will be asked to always maintain professional attitudes and behaviours in work and relationships with classmates, teachers, patients and the community and to commit to follow ethical and professional standards of the profession.
