The Arnold P. Gold Foundation started the White Coat Ceremony in 1993 to welcome new medical students to the healthcare profession. Almost all medical schools in the United States today, as well as schools for other healthcare professions, perform such ceremonies, which serve as a rite of passage for medical students.

Each student, carrying a white coat, walks across the stage and the school leadership helps them don the white coat for the first time.

In addition to the robing ceremony, students also will take the Hippocratic Oath, which acknowledges their primary role as caregivers.

The ceremony will be available via live stream at http://www.utrgv.edu/live
