FSU COLLEGE OF MEDICINE TO HOLD WHITE COAT CEREMONY
 

Members of the Florida State University College of Medicine Class of 2017 will receive white coats in a traditional ceremony symbolizing the importance of compassionate care for patients and the scientific proficiency expected of physicians.


The 120-member class includes former FSU All-American football player and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle.
 

The featured speaker is Dr. Jimmy Moss, a 2010 graduate of the FSU College of Medicine who overcame great odds to become a physician. He spent part of his childhood in a homeless shelter, lived with more than two-dozen relatives at one point or another and went to work in a tire factory at age 13 to help his family. Moss currently is in residency at the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education in Jacksonville, Fla.


The ceremony will be held:

 


FRIDAY, AUG. 16
