2017 Clinical Commencement 'White Coat' Ceremony
The 2017 Clinical Commencement 'White Coat' Ceremony will take place on the evening of Friday 17th February 2017 from 6pm at UCD O'Reilly Hall for medical students entering the formal clinical training stage of their studies. The ceremony will be followed by a reception for students, their guests and staff in the Conservatory in O’Reilly Hall.
The Clinical Commencement Ceremony marks the transition from a predominantly preclinical medical education focus to an intensive period of clinical training. The White Coat symbolise 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.
We look forward to welcoming students and their families to celebrate this major educational milestone. Further details will be posted on Blackboard.
