Welcome, SMD’24 and SMD’25
The UVA Medical Alumni Association was pleased to present two White Coat Ceremonies, endowed by the Class of 1965, on August 13, 2021.
Students in the Class of 2024 received their official welcome to the School of Medicine in the day’s first ceremony, followed by the Class of 2025 later in the afternoon. Although SMD’24 students matriculated in 2020, their White Coat Ceremony was delayed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With masks required for the indoor events at the University of Virginia, the atmosphere inside Old Cabell Hall was still joyous as students and their families gathered to celebrate this milestone event.
Charlie Henderson, MD ’65, attended the first ceremony and represented the Class of 1965, which generously provides funding for the ceremony and the personalized embroidered coats presented to the students. The UVA Medical Alumni Association is grateful to these alumni and all who provide support for today’s students.
