'The White Coat Ceremony is a reminder that after all the things you do, the most important thing is to take care of people.' – Robert L. Johnson, dean of New Jersey Medical School
At one of the first celebratory events since acquiring New Jersey’s two medical schools, Rutgers University recognized more than 300 first-year medical students at annual White Coat ceremonies held recently to welcome aspiring physicians to the 2017 class at both Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and New Jersey Medical School.
“You are entering this medical school at a time that is both exciting and historic,” Peter Amenta, a physician and dean of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School,” said to the 134 medical school students who were gathered at the Arline and Henry Schwartzman Courtyard at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick. “It is going to be up to you, the inaugural class, to define this opportunity.”
