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. 

For a small donation that supports the incoming class to Pitt Med, you can add a note of encouragement, humor, or advice to your student's white coat. Please Click Here to Write a Note to your Pitt Med Student!
