PNWU White Coat Ceremony

While Charise was off to a wedding I was busy at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Yakima, WA going to orientation for medical school.  At the end of the week was our white coat ceremony. You can read about the origin of the white coat ceremony here.  We were cloaked with the white coat as entrance to the medical profession along with a creed to act professionally at all times, and to respect the role as a doctor, accepting all who are in need of care without judgement.  It was a good way to have closure to the previous chapter of my life and begin a new one.
Here is a picture captured by the Yakima Herald of the cloaking of my coat.
Here is a picture from PNWU on flickr with the president of the university Dr. Keith Watson and a member of the board of trustees Dr. Mike Maples. Here we go!
