In 1994, New Jersey Medical School held its first annual White Coat Ceremony, becoming the nation’s second medical school to do so. This special event, sponsored by the Arnold P. Gold foundation, commemorates the arduous journey to medical school and obligates new student doctors to high professional standards for patient care and the practice of medicine. Today, nearly all medical schools across the United States have adopted this tradition.

During the White Coat Ceremony, each medical student is presented with his first white coat and recites the Hippocratic Oath along with his new classmates. The ceremony is also streamed live via the internet so individuals can watch off-campus..
