White Coat

My school has a week of orientation for incoming first year students. Several days of the normal orientation stuff: meet and greets, introductions, expectations, community service and rules, rules, rules.

Then, at the end of the week, is White Coat.

And, at my school, white coat is a BIG DEAL. There are rehearsals and tickets and a huge party afterwards.

It's not complicated, really. It's actually just like it sounds - all the newbies show up, and they get...a white coat. A short one (which signifies a student rather than someone who actually knows what they are doing), but still -- a coat that is white. That people associate with doctors. That people will associate with us as actual medical students.

251 of us, all with white coats. All well on our way.



I have a feeling it's going to be one heck of a ride...
