SCHOOL OF MEDICINE CONVOCATION AND WHITE COAT CEREMONY
WELCOME MEDICAL CLASS OF 2021
Dear Incoming Medical Student:

Welcome to the University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio!! We are very pleased that you will be joining us this summer. The first official activity for incoming students is the School of Medicine Convocation and White Coat Ceremony which will occur on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at  the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts at 100 Auditorium Circle San Antonio, Texas 78205. Doors will open promptly at 9:00am with the ceremony beginning at 10:00am and ending at 11:30am.

School of Medicine faculty will greet you as you enter the medical profession. Each of you will receive a white coat as a concrete symbol of your new professional role. The White Coat Ceremony was initially conceived by Dr. Arnold P. Gold, a faculty member at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and today many medical schools have such a ceremony. 

The School of Medicine Convocation and White Coat Ceremony is your initial entry into the medical profession, so professional attire is highly desirable. Recognizing that San Antonio is “warm” in July, attire should also be comfortable. You will be more comfortable if sport coats and jackets are left in the car, especially since you will be wearing a white coat. Please keep in mind that the ceremony proceeds quickly; therefore, we limit individuals who place coats on students to faculty ONLY

We ask that you respond no later than June 1, 2017 with your coat size and the number of guests (including you) who will attend the event. Keep in mind that the coats are "unisex" in size, so for female students we strongly encourage you to order one size smaller than your usual coat size. Keep in mind that we are limited to exchanging out your coat once your size is given. If you have further questions regarding the coat size, we ask that you contact Sunshine Distributors at 210-224-0455 or siew@mysunshinedistributors.com. 


If you have questions about any issues outlined in this letter, please contact Mrs. Rochelle Valera with the Office of Student Affairs at Valerar@uthscsa.edu or at (210) 567-4430.  We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at the White Coat Ceremony!!

Sincerely,

Office of Student Affairs
