Welcome Class of 2016! 

 

White Coat ceremony.jpgThe OSU College of Medicine officially welcomes the entering Class of 2016 with a traditional White Coat Ceremony on Monday, August 6, at 4:00 pm in Mershon Auditorium. Part of orientation for new medical students, the White Coat Ceremony includes the traditional donning of the students’ white coats as a symbol of entry into the medical profession,  a recitation of the Hippocratic Oath and a recitation of a student oath written by the class.

The Class of 2016 will be the first medical class to learn under Ohio State’s new Lead.Serve.Inspire curriculum, an innovative approach that integrates clinical practice with foundational science throughout the curriculum, beginning with Day One as a medical student, allowing students the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to actual patient situations. (Read more about the LSI curriculum.)

This year’s class comprises 178 students. Seventy-six (43%) are residents;102 (57%) are non-residents. 78 are female (44%) and 100 are male (56%). Thirty (17%) are underrepresented minorities.

Established by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation in 1993, the White Coat Ceremony welcomes entering medical students and helps establish a psychological contract for the practice of medicine. The event emphasizes the importance of compassionate care for the patient as well as scientific proficiency.  The White Coat Ceremony was initiated on August 20, 1993 at the Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons. Grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in 1996 and 1997 made future and widespread advocacy of this celebratory and solemn event possible. Currently, a White Coat Ceremony or similar rite of passage takes place at more than 90% of schools of medicine and osteopathy in the United States, as well as at all four medical schools in Israel.
