Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine holds white coat ceremony
Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine held its 11th annual white coat ceremony for the Class of 2023 on Aug. 2 at the St. Robert Bellarmine Theater at Scranton Preparatory School.
The Class of 2023’s future doctors participated in a ceremony, held in common with virtually every other medical school in the nation, designed to welcome new medical students into the profession. Students recited an oath acknowledging their responsibilities as future physicians and their obligations to future patients. Then they were cloaked with the white coat — the mantle of the medical profession.
Kristina Adams of Kunkletown received a white coat during the ceremony.
