Dream coat


Before they see a single patient, even before their very first class, entering medical students don white coats. That’s Stacey Garfield receiving hers from School of Medicine Vice Dean Gail Morrison, M.D., as part of the school’s Class of 2004 “White Coat Ceremony” Aug. 15 in Stemmler Hall. In addition to receiving their white coats, the incoming medical students were also officially inducted into the profession by reciting its creed, the Hippocratic Oath.
