Virginia Campus White Coat Ceremony

White Coat Ceremony

The White Coat Ceremony recognizes academic achievement of first year medical students where they are awarded their first white coat -- a symbol of the milestone they have achieved in their medical studies.

Class of 2022 White Coat Ceremony

The White Coat ceremony for the Class of 2022 will take place on Sunday, October 21, at 1:00pm in Burruss Hall Auditorium on the Campus of Virginia Tech

IMPORTANT:

Please note that there will be a bag check at Burruss Hall Auditorium. Virginia Tech has adopted a “clear bag policy” for events and this should be communicated to everyone planning to attend the White Coat Ceremony. We suggest providing your families with this information to prevent any challenges the day of the event. Wrapped packages will not be allowed. You may carry in one unopened bottle of water. View the full guidelines for Virginia Tech Clear Bag Policy.

  • White Coat Rehearsal time TBD
