FSU Press Release - First-year students at The Florida State University College of Medicine will receive the white coats symbolic of their unofficial entry into the field of medicine during a ceremony Friday evening.
It is always a meaningful event, but this year it will be even more significant than usual:
* This year is the 10th anniversary of the College of Medicine’s creation.
* And with this Class of 2014, the medical school has reached full enrollment.
Here is how much it has grown: In 2001, when the school’s first class arrived, there were only 30 students. Now, counting all of the first- through fourth-year students, there are 480.
The ceremony for 120 members of the Class of 2014 will be held:
