Med Students with Signs

My White Coat Represents…

The class of 2021 has officially joined the UNR Med family. During the two-week MedFIT program, our newest group of aspiring physicians was asked to think critically about why they are here. In a photography project spearheaded by Audrey Goodnight, Advancement and Engagement Director of Events and Protocol, first-year students were given a whiteboard and asked to finished the sentence,“My white coat represents…" Photos with their unique answers were then displayed at the White Coat Ceremony on August 11.

"Our events are experience-based. We focus on what makes each milestone meaningful to others," said Goodnight. “With the White Coat Ceremony, our students enter the cycle of medical education, which one day they will hopefully give back to. This ceremony is somewhat earnest as students commit to a life of service. They are committing to a career that comes with personal sacrifices and begin to value others' health separately from their personal beliefs, experiences and backgrounds."
