Author Brian T. Maurer will deliver the keynote to students, faculty, family and friends at the White Coat ceremony of the Yale Physician Associate Program on October 2, 2015.
Mr. Maurer will address first-year students as they move into the longitudinal clinical tract of their education.
Traditionally, the White Coat ceremony recognizes students as they transition to the ranks of clinicians in their interactions with patients at the bedside.
Mr. Maurer, now in his fourth decade of medical practice, will focus on the role of the clinician as listener and healer.
The 2015 Yale White Coat ceremony will take place in the Harkness Auditorium, 333 Cedar Street, New Haven, Connecticut, on Friday, October 2nd, at 2:00 PM.
