For many students, dreams of putting on the white coat begin the day they are accepted
into medical school. The white coat symbolizes that the years of hard work and dedication
have finally paid off. The student’s white coat also symbolizes that they have been
invited into the prestigious profession of medicine, a privilege which comes with
great professional responsibility.
