On March 12, 2010 the California School of Podiatric Medicine (CSPM), a school within Samuel Merritt University, held its 14th annual White Coat Ceremony for the class of 2013. Nearly fifty podiatry students in the Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) program formally received their first white clinic coat in the presence of families, guests, faculty members and CSPM leaders. The ceremony provided an opportunity for faculty and mentors to welcome the first year students into a wider circle of colleagues, and it allowed students to recognize significant individuals who provided them with support throughout their education.

"The symbolism and power of the White Coat Ceremony lies in its ability to correlate the scholastic endeavors we delve into on a daily basis, with a future in medical practice, a goal we share together as fellow podiatry students," said Gregory Vidovic, student and Class President, CSPM 2013.
