Places, Everyone!
The Members of the Class of MD'14 don their white coats.

The largest entering class ever—101 students, to be exact—received their symbolic white coats on October 23, 2010. This marked the 10th year of Alpert Medical School’s formal welcome to the world of medicine, held during Family Weekend. Because the class size has grown and more proud parents, significant others, and friends attend, the ceremony is now held at the First Unitarian Church on Benevolent Street— meaning students begin their training and graduate as physicians in the same historic venue.

Members of the Brown Medical Alumni Association Board of Directors (in the front row, with Dean Wing), which purchases the students’ coats, were on hand for the celebration.

Perched in the balcony of the Unitarian Church’s Parish House, photographer Adam Mastoon corralled the group of very excited, newly coated medical students. He captured the moment using the Canon 5D Mark II camera. Mastoon is an editorial photographer whose work has been exhibited nationally and published internationally.
