Tomorrow is white coat sponsorship deadline

Vanderbilt University School of Medicine's first-year students are embarking on an exciting time as they begin their medical education this fall.

Staff and faculty have the opportunity to welcome these new students to the Vanderbilt community by making a gift to sponsor their white coats, traditionally the first mark of a physician in training. Each gift will also support the student-run Shade Tree Clinic, student research and presentations by students at national meetings.

Every $100 gift sponsors a new medical student’s white coat. A gift of $2,500 or more will provide even more sponsorships and qualify the giver for membership in the Canby Robinson Society.

Those who want to show their support may do so by making a gift by July 18 at vu.edu/whitecoat.
