Getting their white coats (and, for one student, getting engaged): A big day for Stanford’s newest med students

A new video documents the white coat ceremony, which welcomes Stanford's newest medical students and physician assistant students to campus.

Last week my colleague reported on our white coat and stethoscope ceremonies, two feel-good annual events that officially welcome the medical school's incoming MD and physician assistant students to campus.

Now, we have a video to share from that happy day, which includes the thoughts of three new medical students (“It’s a time to just appreciate how happy my parents are," said one), words of welcome from Dean Lloyd Minor, MD, and a marriage proposal. (She said yes!) Enjoy.
