The Dean and the Faculty of the School of Medicine
are proud to present the White Coat Ceremony and The Gold Humanism Honor
Society Induction Ceremony.
Linking these two ceremonies together provides an inspiring start to the
academic year. In the White Coat Ceremony, the Class of 2023 is
welcomed into the medical community in the presence of family, friends,
and faculty members. These entering students are fitted with their first
white coats and take their first step towards the responsibility of the
physician by reciting the Oath of Hippocrates.
In the Gold Humanism Honor Society Induction Ceremony, we honor selected
senior medical students. These students have demonstrated exemplary
behavior that promotes humanism in medicine, excellence in clinical
care, leadership, compassion, and dedication to service.
The keynote speaker is Amanda Gosman, MD and the recipient of the
Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award. The speaker is nominated for
this award by her peers and chosen by a sub-committee of the UC San
Diego Health Sciences Faculty Council.
