Words of wisdom, inspiration, and advice.

The White Coat Ceremony is a meaningful, annual Faculty of Medicine tradition at the University of Ottawa.  As of fall 2021, our newly admitted PhD students will embark on their journey to become a scientist in the presence of the members of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa, our colleagues, family, and the community. During the ceremony, each PhD student will be presented with a white coat marking their entry into their PhD program and as a symbol of the high standards of professionalism expected as a student and throughout their careers.

This year, the ceremony will take place virtually, to welcome our students to the faculty, due to the guidelines put in place by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Ottawa Public Health.
