White Coat Ceremony – Wayne State University

White Coat Ceremony – Wayne State University


I traveled a long journey to get this white
coat. Wayne has so many opportunities. I’ve had the opportunity to give back. And have an impact on a city that’s bouncing
back. So, I want to be part of that. You hear those words but it takes a really
long time to really understand. And I really didn’t understand the disparities,
in terms of affluence, in terms of education that were going on here. I just realized there’s so much that a person
can do. It just takes a little bit of their time. A little can go a long way. It’s just really nice to be able to be a part
of something. Especially in such a growing city. The city is changing over night. And it’s amazing to be part of that. I knew that Wayne had a really wonderful reputation
for clinical excellence in an urban setting. Volunteering was really important to me so
to be able to continue that in an underserved population, Wayne was really the perfect mix
for that. I just love that Wayne State was a school
that tries to make sure that its students understand the importance of the community
that their in and serve it as much as possible. I believe the mentorship from Wayne State
faculty, in particular the large number and diversity of faculty here — that’s what I
look forward to being part of. Being here feels so surreal so I’m just really
excited. Growing up here, I was able to see obviously
the population and some of the underserved communities that really could use better health
care. Just being here is really rewarding for me. Especially because I’m able to give back to
my community and I’m able to learn in my community. I really appreciate that and I’m very grateful. I’m very, very proud to be a Warrior M.D.
– very excited. It’s truly a blessing. It’s been wonderful. Go Warriors!
