White Coat Ceremony

Each term, a White Coat Ceremony is held for first-term students in the Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. This ceremony marks entry into the noble profession of medicine or veterinary medicine. Students should dress professionally (as if going to the hospital or a job interview) and bring a shirt, tie, and trousers, or a dress for this occasion.

Please note that in Grenada, the ceremony dates coincide with Beyond Spice Family Weekend. Families are able to take advantage of all that Family Weekend has to offer without missing the event that marks their students’ entry into the medical or veterinary medical profession. All guests must register for the respective ceremony on the Family Weekend website.

Family members who are unable to visit will be able to view a recording of the ceremony after the event. A link will be provided after the event to ensure your family does not miss the opportunity to share in this momentous ceremony.
