New students in The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences will receive their traditional doctor’s white coats during a welcome ceremony Thursday, Aug. 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Nitschke Hall Auditorium.

Dr. Jeffrey P. Gold, chancellor, executive vice president for biosciences and health affairs, and dean of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences, will officiate the ceremony in which more than 175 medical students will receive their white coats.

The annual white coat ceremony is a rite practiced at medical schools across the country as a way to welcome students to the clinical aspects of medical practice and impress upon them the importance of professionalism and humanism in the field of medicine.
