About the New Programs

Each August, more than 100 medical students formally join the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry during the annual Robert L. and Lillian H. Brent White Coat Ceremony. Join us in welcoming them to the SMD community by sharing a few words of wisdom. To be a part of this annual tradition, click the button below. Your message will be placed in the pocket of a student's white coat for them to read on this milestone day.
