Parents and Partners: Passing Notes Before Class
For over a decade, the White Coat Ceremony has served as the official—and often emotional—launch of the medical careers of our talented students. The MAA knows how important this ceremony is to the families, as well as the student.
If you would like to add a note to the pocket of your child’s white coat, which they will receive on stage, please fill out this form.
