On Thursday, September 13, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai celebrated its twenty-first annual White Coat Ceremony welcoming the Class of 2022.
The Class of 2022 represents a range of diverse backgrounds and experiences: 19 percent of the incoming students identify as underrepresented in medicine (URiM) and 48 percent of the class are women. The Class of 2022 are alumni to 64 different college institutions, with majors in science, the humanities, and the arts.
Throughout the momentous event, the new class pondered over thought-provoking questions that they will carry throughout their careers: What are the makings of a leader? As future physicians and scientists, what lies lies ahead? How will you shape the times?
Relive the moment.
