Through the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation’s White Coat Campaign, every incoming student receives their first white coat and a note of encouragement from the physician who sponsored their coat. Thanks to your generosity, every first-year student at University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health (UWSMPH) and Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Central, Green Bay and Milwaukee will receive their first white coat and a warm note of welcome.
All students attending MCW-Central Wisconsin and MCW-Green Bay are receiving their coats at white coat investiture ceremonies this week with a warm welcome by Wisconsin Medical Society (Society) President, Wendy Molaska, MD.
Ceremonies at MCW-Milwaukee and UWSMPH are scheduled for August. Society President-elect, Don Lee, MD, an alumnus of MCW-Milwaukee, is looking forward to greeting the students there. President Molaska will also be welcoming students at her alma mater, UWSMPH.
The Foundation and Society are thrilled to play a role in assisting the physicians of Wisconsin to carry on the tradition of welcoming every student who attends medical school in Wisconsin to their new professional family. Together, the Society, Foundation, WisMed Assure and WisMed Financial are pleased to encourage students to take advantage of the support, networking and mentoring opportunities available to ensure their success in school and throughout their careers.
