White Coat Ceremony Take 2

You may remember at that start of John's medical school UTMB had a ceremony for all the medical students to receive their white coats. Well, they have the same for PA school too. This year it was delayed to the end of the semester, but it finally happened yesterday. The ceremony is really just a formal welcome to the profession and taking an oath to protect and respect patients. Here are the pictures:

It is nice the class is so small because I know almost everyone in my class. Here is the class of 2010:
