The Arnold P. Gold Foundation White Coat Ceremony was initiated on August 20, 1993 at the Columbia
University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York.

This symbolic event welcomes the medical students into the profession of medicine and emphasizes the
importance of compassionate care for the patient as well as scientific proficiency. Students will recite a pledge,
which represents their public acknowledgment of the responsibilities of the profession and their willingness to
assume such obligations in the presence of their family, guests, and faculty.

In addition to a white coat, each ASOME student receives a pin depicting The Gold Foundation’s
“Humanism in Medicine” logo & a pocket card. ASOME expresses appreciation to The Arnold P. Gold
Foundation for providing the pins
