Class of 2020 Georgetown School of Medicine White Coat Ceremony


– Class of 2020, welcome
to the exciting profession of medicine. You’re being given the opportunity to be part of the greatest
of all professions at its greatest moment. You can grow as a human being in knowledge and technical skills and the very goodness of your being to reach the pinnacle of your gifts and talents
as you care for others. You came here with a tiny flame burning inside of you. We plan, as teachers, to
throw a few logs on that flame and create what the French
call, The Sacred Fire; that incredible, wonderful, unquenchable desire to maximize one’s
knowledge and talent. Yes, today you begin the
longest journey of your life, so the philosopher said; the journey that brings the talents and skills of the mind and the hands to the heart and extends them further out in the service of others. And as you do, remember,
remember, remember the patient, the patient, the patient. He needs you now more than ever. Thank you very much.
