Perdido receives white coat at ceremony

Vianne Perdido of Montezuma received a white coat at the White Coat Ceremony at Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) in Harrogate, Tennessee, on June 16. The White Coat Ceremony at LMU-DCOM is a special ceremony designed to mark a student’s entrance into the clinical rotations of their medical school training.
Perdido is beginning the third year as an osteopathic medical student at LMU-DCOM. Perdido received an undergraduate degree from Mercer University and will be starting clinical rotations this fall.
The first White Coat Ceremony was held in 1993, at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons and is now a standard ritual in institutions of both allopathic and osteopathic medical education across the country. During the ceremony, each medical student is presented and “robed” with his or her short white laboratory coat, formalizing and welcoming the student’s entrance into the study of medicine.
