A rite of passage for medical students that emphasizes humanism in medicine, a white coat is placed on each student’s shoulders signifying their entrance into the medical profession.
The White Coat Ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate first-year medical students at UMHS. During this year’s virtual ceremony, family and friends can learn more about the experiences and daily life of their medical students through guest speakers and presentations. Most importantly, witness as students take their first symbolic step in the practice of medicine.
The ceremony will be livestreamed below on the day of the event. It will also be saved and archived for future viewing.

I am excited to be a part of such a vibrant university campus. We have approximately 450-500 students in St Kitts, which I believe is the optimum size for kicking off your new career in Medicine.
The classes are relatively small which provides significantly more one on one access to the faculty, staff and administration. Yet, we have access to sophisticated learning resources that rival or exceed US schools.
