The White Coat Ceremony

Following the Grand Inauguration of the academic year 2012/2013 at the Medical University of Łódź  held on  the  28th of September 2012, the White Coat Ceremony for the freshmen students of English programs took place. The White Coat ceremony, originally American, has nowadays become a more and more popular medical school tradition.

Ceremony was hosted by  Vice-Dean for Studies in English Prof. Ireneusz Majsterek MSc. PhD, the Dean of  the Dentistry Division Prof. Jerzy Sokołowski MD PhD and  the staff of the Administration Center for Studies in English at one of the  newly opened lecture halls of  the MUL  Didactic Centre.

The ceremony commenced  with the speeches of Vice-Dean, Prof. Ireneusz Majsterek and  the MUL Student Government President, Marcel Leichle addressed to the freshmen. Then the  freshmen were ceremonially “cloaked” with white coats. Every white coat, embroidered with  the logo of the Medical University of Lodz  symbolizes fellowship of  the MUL medical community.

Such meaningful ritual at the beginning of medical school encourages students to accept the obligations inherent in practice of medicine:

  • To excel in science
  • To be compassionate
  • To maintain honor and dignity of the profession

We believe that the White Coat Ceremony as well as  the Oath taken during the Grand Inauguration, in front of The Rector and The Senate of the University,  will make students aware of their responsibilities from the very first day of their medical education.

We wish them all the best!
