The White Coat Ceremony will mark the beginning of the medical school journey for our 98 newest students.
Quinnipiac President Judy Olian and School of Medicine Dean Bruce Koeppen, MD will welcome students and their families.
“The White Coat Ceremony formally welcomes the incoming medical students to the School of Medicine, but more importantly it welcomes them into the medical profession with all of the responsibilities and expectations associated with being a physician,” Koeppen said.
Karen S. Morris-Priester, MD, an anesthesiologist at Allentown Anesthesia Associates, Lehigh Valley Hospital, will deliver the keynote address.
