SLIDESHOW: White Coats for the MD Class of 2018

The Class of 2018 is captured in one of the most joyful events sponsored by the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM), the White Coat Ceremony. The ceremony marks the entry of the students into medical school at the University of Hawai`i. Each incoming student is “cloaked” with the waist-length white coat which identifies them as medical students. The students also received stethoscopes from the Hawai`i Medical Foundation and a book from the Friends of the John A. Burns School of Medicine. MDs from the JABSOM Class of 1993 served as special guest “cloakers.” The ceremony was held at the President Theodore Roosevelt High School George Carter Auditorium on July 18, 2014.
