September 2021 Class

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine welcomes the September 2021 Class to our time-honored White Coat Ceremony. This event marks the entree of matriculating students into the profession and commemorates the high standards of medicine. In the presence of friends and families, students are cloaked by deans and faculty members in their first white coat—a symbol of the trust being bestowed upon them to carry on the tradition of doctoring—and led through the Modern Oath of Physicians.

The ceremony will feature a keynote address by Dr. Claire Pomeroy, President and CEO of the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation. Dr. Pomeroy is a champion of research and social justice in medicine and is recognized as one of the earliest advocates of targeted interventions to address social determinants of health. Discover more about Dr. Pomeroy's career and accomplishments.

Directly following the ceremony, students and their guests are invited to attend a dinner reception in Porto Cupecoy. Shuttle transportation will be provided.
