A big welcome to Stanford’s newest medical students

It's a big day for the newest batch of Stanford medical students: Our 93 doctors-to-be will begin their medical journey by receiving their white coat and stethoscope in a ceremony on campus this afternoon. It's a symbolic and at times emotional event -- and one that past students have called "really exciting and a little surreal."

Look out for photos and tidbits from the afternoon on the school's Instagram feed and its Facebook page; scenes from the day will also be shared on Stanford's Snapchat starting around 5 PM Pacific time.
