College of Medicine Alumni Magazine - Summer 2018 Start a New Tradition

Drexel University College of Medicine White Coat Ceremony

Please help us leave a lasting impression on our first-year medical students by purchasing a white coat and stethoscope to be presented at the White Coat Ceremony.

Each year, first-year medical students are presented with a white coat during the White Coat Ceremony. This emotional event marks the beginning of the medical school journey for our students.

Traditionally, alumni are invited to purchase a white coat for a first-year medical student. This has been a wonderful way to connect medical students with alumni and reconnect alumni with their own journey/experience through medical school.

Beginning in 2018, all first-year medical students will receive a stethoscope and a white coat, thanks to the inspiration of alumnus Raymond Schreyer, MD, HU '78. Additionally, Dr. Schreyer will generously match any gift to the White Coat/Stethoscope Fund, up to a total of $13,000.
