The White Coat Ceremony is an annual tradition marking the matriculating class of students entering the dental profession. It celebrates the choice to pursue a life in service to the health of society. During the Ceremony, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry deans and faculty members cloak students in their first white coat as a symbol of of the trust bestowed upon them to carry on the healing profession on dentistry.
The 2017 ceremony will take place on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 5 pm at the UIC Student Center West Thompson Rooms. A reception will be held immediately after the ceremony at the College of Dentistry. The Ceremony will acknowledge and honor the DMD Class of 2021 and DMD Advanced Standing Class of 2019 students as they affirm their commitment to professionalism, humanism, integrity and ethics in dentistry.
