UNLV School of Medicine, White Coat Ceremony Class of 2022


[Entry music] Today the students in the class of 2022
will receive their first white coat. This coat is a symbol of their entry into the
profession of Medicine. It’s a accumulation of many years of hard
work and preparation stuff to come right here get our white coat and begin our
medical training I am very excited I was crying my way here I’m gonna be
holding tears throughout the entire ceremony. Today you’re taking the
first step of a long exciting, sometimes sleep-deprived journey but it’s a
worthwhile one. Its a once in a lifetime event for each of those students and for
all of their families and for us as faculty to have them to celebrate. The
importance of the field of medicine to our state, city, and community cannot be
understated. Our state and our community needs you and on behalf of the Nevada
System of Higher Education, we’re committed to seeing you through this
journey. With this coat, you our medical students,
are connected to all of us in the profession of Medicine.
You’re also granted a connection to patients and access to patients through
this coat. We know that when you wear it you will remember to act with compassion
and kindness. It’s a very huge moment because my father
and my mother dreamed, you know me going to medical school and this has also has
been my ambition. You know in a real race they give you a bib to identify you
as a runner. Think of your short white coat as your bib to identify you as a
medical student, until you cross the finish line to become a physician and
are awarded with the long white coat. As I commit myself to uphold the values
and traditions of medicine, I offer this oath to those I will serve and those I
will serve alongside. I will afford everyone the respect and dignity owed to
human life. Putting on the jacket and taking the oath means that you have
finally done what it takes to get to this spot and that you’re gonna embark
on a new journey that’s gonna be so hard but still rewarding at the same time.
Just to wear this it’s it’s kind of like that reassurance again even though we’re
in medical school, we got accepted, it’s that ultimate last thing that we kind of
feel like all right we made it to med school we we’re on our way to
becoming a doctor. I’m so proud and excited to be part of the ceremony and
to welcome this class into the profession of medicine as they receive
their first white coat. So congratulations class 2022. you
