Penang International Dental College is celebrating the White Coat Ceremony on the 9th of October 2015. It marks an important milestone in the lives of third year dental students, who begin a new chapter in their journey of lifelong learning. White coats are symbolic of the professionalism that is expected of students during dental school, and as clinicians and dentists.
On this day, students pledge their commitment to their professions and to the health of the patients they will serve. Contributing to the care and healing of others is a privilege and a great responsibility. The White Coat placed on each future health care professional is more than a familiar lab coat - it is a cloak of competence, communication, caring, curiosity, character and community. This day is celebrated by students and academic faculty together.
