PHILADELPHIA, PA – It was a perfect fit as Temple University’s newest class of medical students tried on their white lab coats for the first time, marking the start to an exciting career ahead. This relatively new tradition, known as a white coat ceremony, is considered to be a rite of passage in the medical field. Dean of the Temple University School of Medicine, Dr. Larry Kaiser, helped cloak the class of 2015 in their new set of white threads saying, “From the moment you put on that coat, you will become part of a great profession and all that goes with it. It’s almost a living thing … this kind of educational process.”This year’s white coat ceremony was Dr. Kaiser’s first as Dean of the School of Medicine and helped welcome in all 211 first year medical students.
