P&S White Coat Ceremony 2017

The medical school journey began for 152 members of the Class of 2021 at the P&S White Coat Ceremony on Aug. 14. This year’s ceremony took place during the 250th anniversary of P&S and on a date of historical meaning—on Aug. 14, 1767, the governors of King’s College, the forerunner of Columbia, unanimously approved a petition to organize a “School of Physick” at the college. This was the start of medical education at P&S. See more photos.
