Last week, Trinity School of Medicine held the white coat ceremony for its May 2018 students at the school's campus in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
The white coat ceremony, a tradition started at the University of Chicago 30 years ago that has since spread across the United States and Canada, is an induction into medical professional schools. As it effectively celebrates admission into medical school and it book-ends the experience with a student's eventual graduation, the white coat ceremony is an exciting day for all involved. Guests to the day's event included Sir Frederick Ballantyne, Governor General of St. Vincent; Hon. Luke Browne, Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment; members of the Trinity board of directors, faculty, and staff, as well as families and friends of the incoming class.
