MY WHITE COAT MEANS I'VE JOINED THE TEAM
During the White Coat Ceremony, I couldn't help but smile as I looked around at my future colleagues. We were welcomed into the world of medicine and received our team uniform: the white coat. Although our paths to medical school all looked different, these uniforms now unite us as we step forward together. My white coat - and those of my classmates - means I've joined the healthcare team and will work with physicians, nurses, technicians, and most importantly, my patients, to cultivate a collaborative environment where healing prevails.
