White Coat Ceremony 2012/2013

Penulis :BKKPA Isnin, 10 Sep 2012

The White Coat Ceremony (WCC) is a relatively new ritual in some medical (including osteopathic), optometry, dental, chiropractic, occupational therapy, physical therapy, pediatric, pharmacy, physician assistant and veterinary medical schools that marks the student’s transition from the study of preclinical to clinical health sciences. At some schools, where students begin meeting patients early in their education, the white coat ceremony is held before the first year begins.

WCC typically involve a formal “robing” or “cloaking” of students in white coats, the garb physicians have traditionally worn for over 100 years and other health professions have adopted.

The objectives of WCC:

1. To address the issue of medical ethics to students and parents
2. To praise rising students for their success in completing the basic science portion of medicine
3. As a process of induction for the medical students into the faculty
4. To remind the emerging physicians of the importance of their role as compassionate, empathetic healers
5. As an awareness for parents informing them of their child’s success on admission to medical school
6. As an awareness for the media and the public of the existence of a Faculty of Medicine and Defence Health in Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia
