White Coat Ceremony at Penn's Perelman School of Medicine
Last Friday, Aug. 10, 163 first-year medical students at the Perelman School of Medicine started their journey to becoming doctors at the annual White Coat Ceremony. And for the first time in school history, in addition to receiving two of medicine’s most time honored symbols -- the white coat and stethoscope -- Penn Medicine also equipped these budding doctors with an Apple iPad 3.

The new program represents the latest step in a 15 year technology investment by the School to bring medical curriculum into the digital age, and enables students to have access to a multipurpose learning tool that they will use throughout medical school, in the hospital, with patients, and beyond, says Gail Morrison, MD, senior vice dean for Education and director of the Office of Academic Programs.
