In her remarks, Associate Dean Nancy Angoff, M.D., urged students to remember why they want to practice medicine. “We know you will learn the facts,” she told the incoming students. “What we don’t want to happen is for any of you to forget the human element in medicine, the patient’s story. Never let your white coat speak for you.”
