Medical students begin with white coats and stethoscopes
Ninety-three MEDICAL SCHOOL STUDENTS officially began their studies at Stanford last week with the traditional white coat and stethoscope ceremony. It’s a symbolic and at times emotional event as future doctors take their first step toward becoming physicians.
Scope, a blog published by Stanford Medicine, featured photos of the event and a few interesting facts:
- 47 students are women and 46 are men
- 25 were born outside of the U.S.
- Four have doctoral degrees and nine have master’s degrees
- 44 have studied abroad
- 13 played a varsity sport in college, and one-third play a musical instrument
