MD Stethoscope Ceremony 2019

The Stanford Medical Alumni Association and the Department of Student Affairs is proud to welcome the new MD class of 2019 at the annual MD Stethoscope Ceremony event in which first year medical students receive their white coats and stethoscopes. This symbolic ceremony marks the beginning of their journey into medicine. As one of our alumnae said, "The stethoscope is one of the prime symbols of patient care and the practice of medicine. You have to be close to your patient to use it. This is your chance to truly interact with your patient. You are listening to what the patient has to tell you."  - Laurie Weisberg, MD and Former president of the Stanford Medical Alumni Association
