College of Medicine Dean Deborah German will coat two classes of medical students at this year’s White Coat Ceremony on Monday, July 26 – one for the Class of 2024 and one for the Class of 2025.
The ceremony is a medical school tradition where students are recognized as partners in healthcare. Traditionally, UCF holds White Coat on the first day of class for first-year students. But COVID-19 physical distancing requirements prevented the actual coating ceremony for the Class of 2024, who are now entering their second year of medical school. So that class will be coated at 10 a.m. and the Class of 2025 will be coated at 2 p.m. Both ceremonies will take place in the Pegasus Ballroom at the UCF Student Union on the main UCF campus – not at the medical school in Lake Nona.
