New students don white coats at annual UNTHSC ceremony

New students at the University of North Texas Health Science Center will put on their white coats for the first time at the annual Convocation and White Coat Ceremony at 2 p.m. on Sept. 14, at the Will Rogers Auditorium, 3401 West Lancaster.

The event is a â??rite of passageâ? for Health Science Center students that encourages a psychological contract for professionalism and empathy. The students will put on their white coats for the first time, signaling their entrance into their chosen career field, and will take a professional oath, publicly acknowledging their new responsibilities and willingness to assume the obligation of their new profession. 

The incoming students will be welcomed by President Scott Ransom and the deans of each of the schools, and will be addressed by this yearâ??s keynote speaker, Dr. Ron Anderson, president and CEO of Parkland Health & Hospital System.

This yearâ??s ceremony also will include the presentation of the Foundersâ?? Medal and the Mary E. Luibel Distinguished Service Award.
