Meet the new class of medical students at this year's White Coat Ceremony.


When newly minted Tulane University School of Medicine students walk the stage to receive the symbol of their profession at the annual White Coat Ceremony, they have to say one word that captures their personality. When it comes to the Class of 2021, we’ve got one — Amazing!
These 190 students have some incredible experiences to bring to the field of medicine. We met just a few — an inventor, a college baseball player, an international figure skater, a competitive weightlifter/beauty pageant queen, a political refugee from Bangladesh and a Peace Corps volunteer —  this weekend at the official kickoff of their medical education.
