The Twentieth Annual Ceremony of Commitment to Medicine

The Ceremony of Commitment to Medicine will feature an inspiring lecture by from a Brown Medical School Alum. This lecture—The Charles O. Cooke, MD, Distinguished Visiting Lectureship—is supported by a bequest from Mrs. Ruth Cooke Peterson to establish an endowed lectureship in any branch of medicine that can hold promise of significant and lasting benefit to medical education at Brown, or to the community, or the delivery of health care services. In this celebratory ceremony, the BMAA will provide each first-year medical student with a white coat to symbolize their commitment to the world of medicine. Join families, faculty, and administration of the Medical School for this very special presentation.
