White Coat Ceremony 2022
One of the most exciting ceremonies held at Saint Louis University is the School of Medicine’s White Coat Ceremony, the official start of the first-year students’ journey, and welcome into the medical profession.
The School of Medicine welcomed the incoming class of 2026 at its annual White Coat Ceremony on July 31, 2022. The ceremony took place at St. Francis Xavier College Church. During the ceremony, students were cloaked in their first white coat as a symbol of the trust being bestowed upon them to carry on on the honorable tradition of doctoring.
The class of 2026 is made up of 102 women and 78 men. Eleven of the students are first-generation college graduates, nine have master’s degrees, and one has a doctorate. These students come to the School of Medicine from 82 undergraduate institutions.
