This reminds me about a post I once read about some Caribbean students who kicked up a fuss at some Uni b/c there wasn't a white coat ceremony like at US schools.

Can anyone enlighten me on what a White coat ceremony is?

Be nice ;) They got into med school, isn't that enough of an accomplishment? Every culture has weird rituals that might not make much sense to outsiders.

I doubt they have a policy against Palestinians, but you should consider that Sackler is made up chiefly of NY Jews. It's also pretty difficult to get in.

The dress code is as follows:

In the classroom anything goes. When its hot and dry: shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and sandals are the norm.

In the hospital it's not as casual, but still much more lax than the States. Pants or skirts of any type and color; that means jeans are ok. Solid T-shirts are good too. For the guys, leave all your ties at home nobody wears them here. As for footwear sandals are acceptable because it's part of the culture; feel free to wear sneakers as well.

As for white coats, there is no ceremony. At the begining of each rotation you get a coat from the hospital which you return at the end. There is no such thing as a student white coat you wear the same thing as the docs.

Hope this helps (I also think this will make for some interesting conversation!):cool:
