2022 marked the 16th incoming class from the College of Medicine – Phoenix to receive their white coats and begin their medical education in the heart of downtown Phoenix. This meaningful ceremony marks the transition of incoming students to their training as physicians.
Each medical student received a personalized white coat, 3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ Stethoscope and The Patient History: Evidence-Based Approach to Differential Diagnosis textbook from the generosity of contributors to the White Coat Campaign. We thank the members of the College of Medicine – Phoenix faculty and staff, community, longtime friends of the University of Arizona and especially District Medical Group for their contributions each year.
