During the ceremony, rising third-year medical students in the Class of 2022 will don their white coats, the traditional dress of physicians for more than 100 years.
“I am excited to finally learn the art of doctoring from our highly skilled faculty,” said medical student Zack Aggen. “It feels like I’ve been grinding for two years to get to this point. These next two years will be a thrilling experience.”
Aggen, who is class president, will lead his classmates in the Medical Student Oath via Zoom.
Select students from the class of 2021, along with residents and faculty members, will be inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society during the ceremony. Inductees are chosen by current third-year medical students for practicing patient-centered medical care with altruism, integrity and compassion.
Each year, the USA Medical Alumni Association sponsors the event.
