There are several sponsorship levels are available:

  • $100 gift to sponsor a new medical student’s white coat

The M.D Class of 2023 White Coat Ceremony will take place the morning of Monday, August 5, in the Pegasus Ballroom, located in the UCF Student Union. For each white coat sponsored, a student will receive a personalized card in their coat pocket with the name of the donor that helped to make their first moment as a medical student memorable.
