Boonshoft School of Medicine will host a Convocation and White Coat Ceremony to welcome the incoming class of medical students to Wright State University. Surrounded by family and friends in the spectacular Schuster Performing Arts Center, new students will receive the symbol of their chosen profession — the white coat — and take their first oath of professional medical ethics at ceremony. The event kicks off Orientation Week.
Members of the Class of 2021 should check in at 12:30 p.m. outside of the Mathile Theater for picture taking and refreshments provided by the Boonshoft School of Medicine Alumni Association. At the same time, family members and guests are invited to attend an orientation program in the Mead Theatre. After a brief welcome and short video, key school administrators will meet with your family in an informal question and answer session. The official ceremony begins at 2 p.m.
