Journey Through Medical School: The White Coat

This third installment of a video series chronicling Rush University student Joe Santamaria’s first year of medical school shows him donning the clinician’s uniform in the official white coat ceremony.

“Our goal as we literally put the white coat on them is also figurative,” says Paul Kent, MD, an assistant professor of pediatrics, “for them to wear that and feel this new sense that I need to know this, because if I don’t, someone will get hurt. Not because there’s going to be a test on it.”
