Shreveport Med School Students to Get White Coats

Saturday will be a big day for second-year students at the LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine.  

That’s the day they’ll receive their white coats in a rite of passage ceremony attended by their families and faculty mentors in the Riverview Theater.

For the past two years, these students have spent most of their time in the classroom. Now that they’re about to enter their third year, they’ll be spending more time starting to interact with patients in the University Health medical center and clinics so they need to look the part.

The Med School says this yearly ceremony imparts in these students the responsibilities involved with hands-on clinical training, during which they’ll wear their white coats.  During Saturday’s ceremony they’ll also be given “Humanism in Medicine” pins by Med School faculty members who are also alumni of the local school.  They’ll also recite an oath.

Saturday’s ceremony begins at 2 pm.
