MD Stethoscope Ceremony 2018
Thank you to all that could join The Stanford Medical Alumni Association and the Office of Medical Student Affairs at this annual ceremony welcoming the new MD Class of 2018. The annual MD Stethoscope Ceremony event, in which first year medical students received their white coats and stethoscopes is always a special symbolic event marking the beginning of the new MD class's journey into medicine. As our President - Elect of the Stanford Alumni Board of Governors, Arturo Molina, said at Friday's ceremony, "The stethoscope embodies the essence of doctoring... it will allow you to form a connection with your patient... and it only functions if there is a person at each end."
This ceremony is open to the matriculating MD class of 2018, their family members and friends.
