Date: Friday, August 7, 2020
Time: 4:00pm
Location: Old National Centre, 502 North New Jersey, Indianapolis IN 46204

The White Coat Ceremony marks a transformation for first-year students entering medical school. Professional attitudes and ethical behavior are critical attributes of all physicians in training. The short white coats worn by medical students elicit the high expectations patients have of the doctor-patient relationship. In the presence of family, friends and faculty members, students are welcomed in to the medical community by leaders of the school.

Getting a White Coat

Incoming medical students will receive a complimentary white coat for use at the White Coat Ceremony.  Additional coats can be ordered at The Uniform House by using group password “IUSM” or calling the store directly at 317-926-4467.
